My 4S Weapons


Do you have a Secret & Sacred weapon?

I mean one so swift & sublime?

Those all make for S & S right? 

I have two 4S weapons

Let me let you in

It’s a long time ago

I knew I could cry & curse

I could write away like fury

But I didn’t know any better

What better could I do?

With such a shaky voice?

And an unsteady pen?

Both battered and tattered?

To near beyond recognition?

I was so ashamed

To open my mouth or put to print

I couldn’t even use my limbs

Rhumatroid arthritis dealing blows

All was so lost or so it seemed

The pain pushed me inward

I decided to scream it all out

I picked up a keyboard

I could type that wasn’t lost

It dawned on me I could use those

I learnt and still learn

My 4S weapons came to be

I scribble and sing

I shake and shield 

I find and share

Say it as it is

All I can and want

Some solace for me & U

Could you be inspired then my fellow pilgrim?

To look deep within to find yours?

Mustn’t be one to wear you out

Physical fights I can’t do

Mental fights are murky

Emotional fights I’ve had enough

But with my voice and word

Impeccable is the use I give them

Ain’t that Secret & Sacred?

Swift & Sublime?

Good luck with you fellow pilgrim

Author:

Marie Angele Abanga (simplified to Marie Abanga) aka MAG likes to describe herself as a “Jacqueline of several trades”. She is an everyday woman and mother with a zigzag profile. Let’s give it a try! She is an Activist, an Author, a Coach, a Consultant, a Feminist, a Lawyer, a Lecturer, a Prince 2 Project Manager, a Psychotherapist, a Philanthropist, a minister of the Word of God and...! She just loves to sum it up by saying she is a person of passions and a tale of talents. Her life’s journey has filled over 6 books already and her three musketeers keep her busy at home. MAG is also the founder and CEO of the association Hope for the Abused and Battered, and the Country Director of the Gabriel Bebonbechem Foundation for Epilepsy & Mental wellbeing. The plethora of life's experiences and shenanigans she has lived through and learned from in near 4 decades of existence, have equipped her with such an arsenal to coach, train and motivate just any and everyone. She is so charismatic, dynamic and full of life, going by her designed mantra of 3Ds: Determination; Discipline and Dedication. These sum her+her quest to be the best version of herself and impact others perfectly. She attributes all her wealth of knowledge to her conscientious attendance of both informal and formal school.

  1. WOOOOOOWWW! This is just off-the-charts incredible. Wow. You’re referring to the Four Agreements, right? You must! I read that book a long time ago.

    This poem spoke to me, Marie. Most poetry I read doesn’t sink in or really affect me, although to be honest, I don’t read that much poetry, LOL. But this is special. And so are you.

    1. Lady yes the four agreements feature recently in lots of my poems. That book is in its league even the five Agreements am currently reading doesn’t do it like the four did. Am honoured you love my poetry. I write for me and mine trying to keep it simple lol
