The Promise – A Reflection

This poem titled The Promise was authored by Akiane kramarik at age 11 in her book titled My Dream Is Bigger Than I – Memories of Tomorrow – Part Four Page 189 “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 Promise consists of six stanzas four lines each…The featured image or photograph I choose for this reflection is of the moon that I saw before sunrise the other morning…I could not capture the beauty of the morning moon that we get to see before the sun rises…In my modest photograph which does not do justice to the natural beauty of nature the nature created by our creator who is the God of life…I tried to capture the beauty of the yellow moon which sad to say my effort failed to capture in my modest photograph…I will now quote from this poem titled The Promise…I will quote both the first and last stanza leaving out the rest of this poem…”Peace is making love—there is no disturbance in the steaming hot fruits stretched in spice. Illusion has depth too—the depth of despair. A missing ring is a life of waiting. Water can be washed only with water.” To me the reader of Akiane’s poems and author of this review in the form of reflections…Akiane’s prose is mystical and multidimensional in nature similar to Akiane’s amazing art that you can find when you search Akiane’s work online…When Akiane writes about The Promise this is the promise that the God of life gave to Abraham to our fathers and to his seed forever…You will find this promise quoted in Luke chapter one verses 48 – 55 which I will quote for ease of reference from Douay-Rheims….”And Mary said: My soul doth magnify the Lord. And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. Because he hath regarded the humility of his handmaid: for behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. Because he that is mighty hath done great things to me: and holy is his name. And his mercy is from generation unto generations, to them that fear him. He hath shewed might in his arm: he hath scattered the proud in the conceit of their heart. He hath put down the mighty from their seat and hath exalted the humble. He hath filled the hungry with good things: and the rich he hath sent empty away. He hath received Israel his servant, being mindful of his mercy. As he spoke to our fathers: to Abraham and to his seed for ever.” Luke Chapter One verses 46-55 Douay-Rheims…. The Promise is the promise that the God of life made to our fathers to our seed for all of us who are Christian and part of the seed of the God of life the seed of Abraham…God told Abraham to “be fruitful and multiply which was said from Genesis and is eternal…Mankind has been told to “be fruitful and multiply” So when couples married or not refuse to be fruitful and multiply these couples become profane and their spirits change to the profane. Many prideful people who are worse than I ever was love to call people like me who can cuss like a sailor profane because I cuss…These high and mighty ones are more profane than I ever could be and my cussing has got nothing on their profanities…The profanity of vile contraception and birth control in all its ugly forms that feeds the mammoth blood letting abortion industry…Ones who had abortions would dare to call ones like me profane because ones like me cuss from time to time…Also if ones like me become angry and or upset we are often accused of becoming elevated of being emotionally unstable of being mentally ill and of being profane if cuss words are said…There is a difference here I do not promote or condone calling other people names or cuss words…I am saying cuss words in general such as fuck that shit this is bullshit of the highest order etc…Cussing can be very therapeutic too as long as you are not calling others cuss words or names cussing is ok…Now I must insist on saying this too never yell at your loved ones including your family pets…I do not yell at my son or my dog….In fact if I feel upset about something I will calm down first and if I perceive that I was yelling or if my son feels like me his mom was yelling I will apologize and remedy that on the spot…Sometimes too our children as they grow up often perceive us parents as yelling when in reality we are not yelling we are simply telling our children to help out around the house or correcting their behavior…I had this happen with my son whom I love very much…I was speaking to my son in a very calm tone of voice…My son became upset and stated that I was yelling…I said to my son that I would record the conversation and play it back for him when he is calm so that he can see that I was not yelling…My son calmed down and apologized…My son is an amazing young man…Because I do not yell when I speak to my son…My son has learned how to express himself to me his mom without yelling as well…So when I say that cussing is ok I mean in general if ya need to vent go to your private room your private space and let your pillow have it…Or do as I do and write songs and sing your heart out who cares if you are not a diva or the best singer on planet earth…I know that I am no diva and certainly not the best singer on planet earth…It is ok to vent as well as long as the person you are venting to understands your need to vent and is a safe person…In my part time job I helped a lady who was going through a very stressful time by allowing her to cuss up and down left and right to me on the phone because for me it was not personal…She was not calling me foul names she was simply getting off her chest all that negative energy and she not only thanked me for listening she gave me a very good review because I also accurately predicted events in her life…So if you have a safe person you can vent to then go for it…Or do as I do and hoot and holler at your pillow…Your pillow will survive and will always be a pillow…I found an outlet through my blog and singing…Outlets are very healthy…I worry about the ones who are silent who are full of rage over injustice yet say nothing but one day could explode and do serious harm to others…You see this many times with the awful mass shootings that many of us do not want to see happen here in America…I am not a violent person…I do not believe in violence like so many others from all walks of life…All I want to do is work as much as I can pay my taxes to Uncle Sam as a law abiding citizen of America and to live a simple quiet life…I do not think that is too much to ask and for most folks around the world that is all most of us want…Is the freedom to work hard and live simple lives…One of the things I love to do as a hobby is to sing sacred scriptures…As a thank you for reading this reflection enjoy my sacred scriptures on You Tube…This is a work in progress…I have completed all fifty chapters of Genesis so I will share with you on this post all the scriptures I have sung so far…I also include a prayer before and after the singing of sacred scriptures found in Douay-Rheims….One of my favorite Bible Stories is the story of Joseph and his coat of many colors…Joseph was a diviner in the land of Egypt who could interpret dreams….Modern mankind would call Joseph a psychic…Joseph was not a psychic he was a diviner as mentioned in sacred scriptures…I consider myself an empath and a diviner of sorts though I make no claim to be on the same level as Joseph of Egypt whose divining skills were well known throughout the land of Egypt…If I could re-label who I am for my current employer…I would remove the word or label psychic and replace it with diviner one who can with empathy read hearts….Not minds and that is a good thing…Joseph of Egypt could not read minds either though he could read hearts and interpret dreams similar to what I can do today…Again I make no claim to be on the same level as Joseph of many colors…With this post I include all of Genesis all fifty chapters…Please join me in dedicating this post to our current President Elect Donald Trump whom I voted for and whose courage I applaud for upholding Judeo-Christian values by taking a stand for Christianity…Well done President Elect Donald Trump and I will vote for you again in the next election…I am a registered voter and I vote as a woman because women suffered through the suffrage movement to fight for women’s rights to vote among other things…So for all true feminists who birth their babies and protect the unborn and do not promote profane abortion laws…This post is also for you…I stand with President Elect Donald Trump and proclaim from the rooftops to any ear that will listen…America you must return to your roots which is Native American in nature which means we must respect all forms of life and nature too…For all the Eagle Strong Voices throughout the centuries to this very day from the Native American Tribes this post is also for you….I dedicate the singing of sacred scriptures to the Most High God of life and I let he word of God convict the wicked who love to hate our President Elect Donald Trump…Heaven help us all and Heaven help our president Elect Donald Trump America and the world…………

Wade in 1972 America your children are no more and I one from Dan join the loud cry of Rachael in Rama for the children are no more and I shall not be comforted…………
