Who has that power???


Who has that power???

To turn you into a robot

To determine how you feel

Love; fear; happy; sad

Whose responsibility is it???

How you see things

The voices you hear

The reactions to it all

The choices to make

What happens next???

When you say aha

Because you dug and found

Who has that power

Is it YOU or THEM???

p.s: Motivated and inspired by something I read from a book this morning titled: Love is letting go of fear. Made me remember the above song I loved and jumped to in the 1990s

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. It is ALWAYS the individual; there are impediments, (physical, psychological, emotional, etc…) however, that sometimes FIRST must be identified and re-balanced before CONTROL can be restored.

    1. Doc thanks as usual for your comment. I will there suggest that the you has the power to seek to understand any impediment, play any role you can in ‘balancing ‘ and a big power in the ‘onward’ journey. This was the ‘tongue in check’ behind this poem. I write them for myself above all to inspire and motivate me on my own journey because a decade ago I had all but ‘lost’ that power!!!
