The Lamentations of the Unborn The Knocks Authored by Akiane Kramarik at age 7 in her book of poems titled My Dreams Are Bigger Than I page 20 Part I. “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 Knocks is very powerful it consists of four stanzas alternating between three line stanzas and five line stanzas. The Knocks describes the unborn child knocking with it’s tiny hands on the wall of the womb of it’s mother. This child laments the “delay of provision” and says that “From exhaustion from the delay of provision dreams are born.” Very profound. This is a short poem so I limit my quotes to the last verse which tells it all. So many unborn children not allowed to live who could have made our world a better place. I wonder when I am out whom I have not met that would be here were it not for abortion and contraception and all forms of birth control.
