The Lighthouse consists of two stanzas with four lines each. The photograph I choose for this reflection I choose for the little light that lights up at dusk and night time. This is a memorial marker a small memorial set up by a grieving mother for her lost child. I met the mother once with her other little children and she confirmed this was why they were there and why this little memorial was erected. What a beautiful loving way to mourn the loss of beloved child. I have no idea how that grieving mother in Ireland lost her child. All I know is she knew how to grieve the loss of her child and as such this mother is a beacon of home a light to the world. A light in this dark world of ours lost to abortion on demand. For me the light in that photo represents a little lighthouse of it’s own a lighthouse for mankind to wake up and to stop the senseless slaughtering of holy innocent babies in their own mother’s wombs. In Akiane’s poem the Lighthouse – The first stanza talks about one who is “Irritated by broken lightning lines” and ends with the sentence “when inextinguishable silence fell.” The second stanza expresses the one feeling “Tired of tidal wave temptations and threats the lighthouse began sinking into quicksand.” And ends with the words “where I walked without you.” In this poem the lighthouse is an allegory a representation of the light of children who are meant to come into the world and fulfil God’s plan for them. The lighthouse is a symbol of the light of the life of children snuffed out destroyed too soon. “Inextinguishable silence fell.” Speaks to the silence of the children destroyed by abortion on demand though they screamed their screams were silent screams not heard by mankind but heard by God. To me the words about being “tired of tidal wave temptations and threats.” Speaks to the horrible “lips of war” [Akiane age 7] The words of war and verbal abuse spewed on pregnant women by horrible people who pressure them with their horrible words to abort or terminate the pregnancy. The mother tired of these threats and temptations of an easier life without her child goes ahead with the abortion under intense pressure to do so by horrible “lips of war.” The horror of the war on the wombs of mothers is the children die and so the mother walks without her child. Her child is dead murdered via abortion on demand and the God of life and the true Jesus Christ the son of the God of Life must welcome that child to heaven too soon. That child is forced to die with no one to speak for it whose path is now paved in it’s own blood and the God of life through his son Jesus Christ must welcome these children in heaven too soon and heal their wounds from being burned destroyed and torn apart limb by limb by “lips of war” using the euphemism “choice”. So the true Jesus Christ the son of the God of life is forced to witness the “inextinguishable silence of the unborn not allowed to live” Children meant to be welcomed into the world to be nurtured and raised into adulthood so as to make their way to God in heaven above. Instead they are no more and the silence is “Inextinguishable” For the children are no more…………………………………………… As a thank you for reading this reflection enjoy a song I wrote called Let your children come to encourage all to be not afraid to birth your child. For no matter how children come – children are precious in the eyes of our creator the God of life and so are all of the mother’s carrying their babies. You mother’s are also precious in the eyes of our creator who is the God of life…..
