Must all words be spoken for you to listen?

Unspoken words

Those you don’t say

Those you can’t say

Those you wouldn’t say

Those you didn’t say

Those you really want to say

………………

Unspoken words

Those you want me to hear

Hear straight from your heart

Hear by your stare

Hear by the feel

Feel of the hug you scared to share

…………………

Unspoken words

Sometimes the truth is in such words

The real you stuck with them

The fade you says fine

But those who have learned

To listen from the soul

Will clearly hear words unspoken

(c) Marie Abanga

 

p.s: A new month is starting and this is the 10th month of a year which just started like ‘yesterday’? What could we have missed out because we didn’t ‘listen’? Maybe because someone didn’t actually ‘speak the words’ and we are all accustomed to listening to only what is spoken? Maybe we were the ones whose words also got ‘stuck up’ in us, who wanted to say them but for some reason couldn’t get to doing so? Maybe just maybe we could learn or determine to be more attentive and empathetic and strive to listen too to ‘Unspoken Words’? I wrote this poem earlier this year because I felt there was more that could be possible if we acknowledged the power and possibility of Unspoken words, and be ‘strong’ enough to ‘listen’ to one another and ourselves too. Be inspired and motivated everyone and have a great month

Marie Abanga View All →

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 and an etc! 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 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.
