This Was The Time – A Reflection

This poem titled This Was The Time was authored by Akiane kramarik at age 8 in her book titled My Dream Is Bigger Than I – Memories of Tomorrow – Part Two Page 55.  “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 This Was The Time consists of five stanzas with five lines each.  This is another allegorical style lyrical prose.  To me the reader this poem speaks to the truth that for many unborn children their time was planned by the God of life to be born and  make a difference in the world hence the title This Was The Time.  The last stanza says this very well “this was the time to go to Your house this was the time to bow down for You were the song”.  Very true so many songs of life snuffed out before the time.  Earlier in this poem Akiane speaks to this as well as follows:  “there were too many anthems on the strings of an unfinished harp – there were too many sun rays that curled up”  This is found in the stanza preceding the last stanza.  We all have a story to live and to tell and we all also have a life song to sing.  For some of us this is a very happy life song and for many of us our life songs are sorrowful.  Whatever our life stories are or life songs are we are all a work of art created by the God of life.  So many life songs and life stories were destroyed snuffed out curled up destroyed by abortion and contraception.  Hence the allegory of the “harp”.  So many children too many to calculate have not been allowed to be born or to live so that they too could live and by so living create their own life stories and life songs.  Very sad and very true yes This Was The Time and the time is no more for billions of unborn children annihilated by abortion on demand and contraception.
