    Mother And Son Parted At Birth

    in Hard Times Poems

    A mother and son were parted at birth,
    Wrenched from each other on this terrible earth,
    With no place to go she walks through the night,
    Looking for somewhere till the morning light.

Hallo Lucie, No I am not that Ken Budden, I live in Florida but am originally from England.
My son is coming home in May, but now I have a bigger concern, since he's been away he attained his G.E.D. and I'm very proud of him for this, he could have sat and twiddled his thumbs, it's the job situation I am concerned about. I feel once he declares on an employment application his past record they will not hire him, this may be OK for a couple of times but if it continues my concern is he may resort to some crime to get money. I do hope I am wrong. Does anyone know of any government programme to help these newly released offenders?
