Biography of Mariam de Haan

Born and raised in Africa, Tanzania and now living in Europe. I have been writing since the age of 13, it's what got me through my teenage years. At the age of 15-16, my English teacher told me to never stop. Now at the age of 18, I am officially introducing myself as a writer. I am stepping out, chasing my dreams and never looking back.

I write about world issues, about what I see, about my life and about my religion (Islam) which has influenced me so much. Enjoy! ! !

The Sidecar Ride

The tyres kiss the tarmac
Pushing us forward
Past the trees and bushes
Past the men and women

Steal into a life
A man cleans his roof
Children go to Sunday prayers
All watching as we rush by

Be amazed as I go by
Something new, different
A motorbike but more
It's little baby setlles beside it

[Hata Bildir]
