I know it’s not mine
To ask for a minute of your time,
But if you can find it to be ‘fine’
Then this may be deemed a worthy rhyme.
I won’t take hours
Yet, I gave hours
I wrote this.
Because it’s ours,
The life, the lows
The ‘blows’ and the bliss…
Marike Fourie is a young author from South Africa who discovered her passion and talent for writing at the age of 22. She grew up loving mathematics and science, yet chose to drop out twice after attempting further studies in these fields. That’s when her mission became self-discovery and self-actualization, to serve her purpose. She began by journaling and within a few months, the inspiration of the poetic trilogies arrived. She believes that she alone cannot take credit for her writing, since it comes from a force beyond that of the individual identity.
