This poem Definition consists of four stanzas with three lines each…The featured image or photograph I choose for this reflection is of my son during our time in Ireland during one of those rare days of snowfall…Snowfall can happen in Ireland but is rare because the climate in Ireland is sub tropical with an average temperature of 40 degrees Fahrenheit or 4.4 degrees Celsius…I will now quote from Akiane’s amazing poem…Every stanza in this poem opens with the word Define which is neat…I love when Akiane does this with her poetry…I will limit my quote to the last stanza which to me the reader of Akiane’s poetry says it all…”Define the velocity of one lonely white But do not define yourself — Your direction will”…Again Wow!!!…Amazing wisdom from an eleven year old girl…Beyond her years for sure…The choices we make define us which explains how our spirits can be changed for better or for worse…Sounds like marriage in a way because couples who marry get married for better or for worse…When we make good choices we may not always feel the best about making that sound choice or good choice…For example lets just say a bank error happens in your favor…Do you keep the money no matter how small or do you notify the bank immediately???…The right choice is to immediately notify the bank…Most people would do just that and notify their bank immediately…Some would not and hope for the best that the bank will not catch their mistake…Then when the bank catches their error if the amount of money is a large sum then the bank will collect that sum and the consumer could face serious charges even though it was not the error of the customer…One day at my local bank a number of years ago…The bank teller accessed a bank account with the same name as myself…Except the balance that was reported to me was much larger than the modest bank balance I was so accustomed to for years…I had that teller double check and sure enough he had accessed another customer’s account…Had I been shrewd or dishonest I could have wiped out that other customer’s account by simply requesting a large withdrawal…Seriously, I could have done this…I knew that would have been a horribly bad choice so I made sure that I corrected the bank teller and the bank and no one got in trouble for it as it was an honest mistake…However, had I cleared out that other person’s account like it or not that would have been fraud on my part even if the bank made a mistake on their end…I knew that balance could not possibly have been my balance…I never had much and I never asked for much in life…I prefer the peace of mind that simple living provides to ostentatious wealth gained via ill gotten gains…Ill gotten gains happen in various forms…As for me and my house we serve the God of life and avoid ill gotten gains…Sadly many folks thrive on ill gotten gains with no care conscience or concern for the parties they injure along the way…Money spent on contraception contraceptive devices and abortion is blood money and is ill gotten gains for to gain from that line of business is to shed the blood of unborn children…Blood money…Blood money or ill gotten gains happen in many forms from drug pushers who become very wealthy at the expense of others to the bloodletting of unborn children for a price a hit on the head of the unborn child…I must say this too…I read a book about one of the most notoriously infamous drug pushers in the world…As bad as drug pushers can be…My God their cartel members according to the book I read which was a riveting read let me tell you…Their cartel members would literally threaten the mother’s of their children if those women dared to think to harm their unborn children…Again as bad as drug pushers can be and their business is brutal many in that business push drugs because there is no other way for them to earn money to feed their families…I say this because many people who are otherwise decent are often forced into living lives of crime to make ends meet…A life of crime is never a good idea but sadly that is the case for many in poverty stricken areas…What struck me when reading that riveting story based on actual events…Was how protective men who are into drug running and who would kill at a moments notice their enemies or foes were over their own future unborn children and their women…One section of that story goes where a woman loved by one of these hardened men became pregnant and he literally threatened her life if she even thought to harm his future unborn child…In this story she loved him very much as well as they were both madly in love with each other so she made sure to eat healthy and birthed a lovely child for that man who did bad things…I say this because that really made a deep impression on me…The protectiveness of men into bad living or bad businesses over their future children…Something you rarely see anymore in men who have good jobs men who have respectable jobs and men who are respected in the communities they serve often times fail to protect their own unborn children as evidenced by many stories of women men like that impregnate who are often pressured and or forced into having abortions…Gosh tough men in cartels whom you would not want to cross on a good day never mind a bad day have more love and protectiveness in their little fingers for their own progeny their own unborn future children than men who have comfortable lives in respectable positions in society….As bad as drug running and drug pushing is there are worse out there than these drug running cartels…There are the contraception pill pushers who are legal and respected who are worse than the worst drug pushers out there on the streets…There are the sterilization and tubal ligation pushers who are legal and respected who are worse than the cartel drug pushers on the streets…There are the abortion pushers and handlers who force women against their will to have unwanted abortions from their pimps who pimp these women into human trafficking and forced prostitution who are worse than the cartel drug pushers on the streets…There are horrible parents who force their own daughters to have unwanted abortions who are worse than these drug pushers on the streets who protect their own young with a fierce devoted passion rarely seen in mankind anymore…A friend of mine was forced by her own demented mother and father to have an unwanted abortion years ago…That traumatic experience never left my friend who to this day mourns the loss of her baby…My message and point is this there are many horrible narcissistic people in top positions who are worse than the worst drug pushers on the streets…Violence begets violence and those who live by the sword will die by the sword…The wages of sin is death…Those who live by the sword of contraception contraceptive devices and all birth control devices including the sword of abortion will die by the sword of their own profane laws their own profane knowledge that has corrupted the universe…A sincerely repentant cartel drug pusher from the streets who despite hard living fearlessly defended his own offspring his own unborn children the same for women in such situations have a greater chance of heaven than the unrepentant contraception minded birth controlled minds and hearts of lost sheep who feed the wicked abortion industry with their horribly bad choices…Many today are unrepentant for they cannot be converted to authentic Christianity for they are lost to astaroth and his bloodletting practices in many forms not limited to contraception and abortion…For all repentant drug addicts who are in recovery and for all in recovery from addiction including men and women given second chances to repent from their former bad ways be it drug dealing or pushing or any other criminal past…This post is for you…Many deserve a second and third chance so for all who have gotten out of living bad lives this post is for you…Do not let your past mistakes define the person you are today…So what if you did prison time!!!…So what if you have felony’s on your record…What matters most is you got yourself out of your bad ways and you are starting new lives….Turn your “mess into a message” something a well known woman says all the time…I forget her name but she is amazing…Everybody has a story and those of you with criminal pasts who overcame your hard pasts…You have stories to tell to help others to be inspired by how you overcame your past mistakes…Remember too that Moses in scriptures in Genesis killed a man which is awful yet he repented from his heart and went down in the book of life as a holy man of the God of life…The devil himself contended over the dead body of Moses which the devil was obliged to cede to Michael the Archangel because as the scriptures say of this contention…”The Lord Commandeth It.” Do not let your past mistakes no matter how serious define your present…This applies to men and women who lost their children to abortion…This applies to post abortive women who had no idea what the hell they were getting into when they had their abortions…This applies to post contraceptive women who had no idea how truly horrible contraception is…Turn your past experiences into messages as to how you over came and became more enlightened on your own personal Journey’s of your eternities…As a thank you for reading this reflection enjoy my song titled….Forgive yourself…For far too many of us myself included we often have a terrible time forgiving ourselves…I say The time has come to forgive yourself and that time is now…………Namaste…………
