In My Birth Island

In My Birth Island

written by: Maryambu

 

In my birth island
Love, coconut and fish are free
Sun, sand and sea
Are for eternity

With gratefulness
I bow down
In thankfulness
To our Lord

For the favours
And abundance
Of never ending gifts

I originate from the Maldives islands and have a passion for languages. At school, I discovered my interest in English. After graduating from high school I studied Applied Linguistics and have been doing so till today. At present, I work at the University of Waikato as a Learning Development tutor. I also collaborate with a number of overseas universities to research Applied Linguistics. In my spare time, I enjoy writing prose and poetry and I am instantly transported back to different times in my life - I can sense it, feel it and visualise the exact moments. I also have an interest in art and gardening. These activities have taught me to be more patient, but more importantly, taught me to be more patient with myself.
