The Grand Piano – A Reflection

This poem titled The Grand Piano was authored by Akiane kramarik at age 8 in her book titled My Dream Is Bigger Than I – Memories of Tomorrow – Part Two Page 47.  “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.”

This poem The Grand Piano consists of Three Stanzas with eight lines each.   This poem is lovely and describes a small child trying to play The Grand Piano.  In this poem the Grand Piano is too large and is in fact larger than life to this small child.  The end of the final stanza describes the small child very well as follows:  “I pushed the wobbliest chair to the brick-coloured grand piano where I learned to sit and listen.”  Children are forced to sit and listen by virtue of their small stature and small children are totally dependent on their caregivers.  For a very long time children from conception to natural birth and from birth to natural adulthood are totally dependent on their parents and or caregivers. This poem The Grand Piano does a great job highlighting the total dependence children have on their parents and other in the community who care for them.  It takes years for a child to grow into adulthood and raising children to become successful adults is no easy task.  It is a lifetime job and does not end and in fact goes on for all eternity for parents must give an account to our creator the Most High God of life for how we raise our children.  This is a very serious task.   Children listen all the time but few adults listen to their own children or give them a voice.  And the unborn children were given no say no voice at all in their own demise via abortion on demand.
