Life – A reflection

Life found on page 21 Part one in Akiane’s  book of poems titled My Dream Is Bigger Than I Memories of Tomorrow.   “You will need your own copy of this book to view the full text of this poem. I limit quotes for the purpose of discussion and to follow copyright guidelines that allows for limited quotes.”

The poem Life consists of 7 verses or stanzas consisting of three lines each.  The child in this poem talks about the first time the child looked itself was when the child got burnt.  Then the child tells how “The Spirit sent me to wash myself” The poem ends with the question “Is God’s road more narrow than our footprints?”  This is very profound.  This is the unborn child resting comfortable in the womb only to be burnt via first trimester abortion which is typically a saline abortion.  So that the horrible reality is this child once comfortable asleep is forced to look at itself burnt.  What a shock a terrible shock it must be for the unborn child to experience excruciating pain through saline abortion.  God’s road is indeed very narrow but too narrow for the unborn child whose footprints have not been made for they were not allowed to live to learn to walk or to feel their own footprints in the sand or on the earth.  Profoundly tragic.
