They say the reason why every child cries when they are born is because they have just been taken from the world they are used to, a world filled with joy and happiness and love into another world, a world filled with uncertainties. Yes, every stranger has his fears, this cold shiver that runs down their spin as they stare into a new world, a world in which they have absolutely no idea what their fate holds. They say every child cries when they are born, every child, except for the one that was never born.
You know every child has a lot to learn, every child learns to walk even after falling a thousand times, to say the words ‘dada ‘ and ‘mama’s to the ones they love, to laugh when happy and cry when offended, to run when pursued, to goof around with nothing but pants on their waist. Yes, every child has a lot to learn, every child but the one that was never born.
They say that children are the leaders of tomorrow, that in the heart of every child is a vast ocean, just waiting to be explored, an endless stream of opportunities and in the palm of every child lies the future of humanity. They say every child is a shining star, a twinkling star that would one day light up our world, that every child is like a vast ocean of endless possibilities, every child, except for the ones that were never born.
Have you ever seen a shooting star before, yes, that one that travels across the sky burning bright but slowly fading away until it is no longer seen and that one that makes you close your eyes, cross your fingers and make a wish? Well, some believe that every shooting star is a child that was never born returning back to their maker, carrying with them their dreams and aspirations and visions and hopes and desires, some even say that if you believe well enough that they may just carry your wishes along with them to heaven and help you deliver it to God Himself. Some even believe that the flames trailing behind those stars are the dreams and visions of those unborn babies, the shadow of things that would never come to pass.
You know the Bible describes every child as a gift from God, even Jesus was once called a lover of children and sometimes I just can’t imagine the look on His face as He stares at those children, those very gifts He so graciously blessed us with as they return back to Him with their tired feet and red eyes having little tears dropping from the sides and their tired arms still carrying all their dreams, visions and aspirations which by the way now has a huge stamp all over them with the words “RETURN TO SENDER” boldly written on them. I just can’t imagine the look on his face, I just can’t.
You know they say that every child is like a shining star, one that would one day bring light to our cold dark world, every child, except for the one that was never born.
