Die gedigte is my eie wat ek geskryf het hoofsaaklik tydens my studentedae (toe ek myself en my Skepper gevind het) en ook later gedurende emosionele tye in my lewe. Ek het agtergekom dat ek my gevoelens wonderlik kon uitdruk in woorde. As ek beangs, opgewonde, peinsend of hartseer voel, kom die woorde dikwels vanself. Ek kan egter nie net besluit om te gaan sit en skryf nie. Ek moet geïnsprieerd voel - seker maar die kunstenaarstemperament waarvan almal praat...  The poems in this section were written by myself during my student days (when I discovered myself and my Creator) and also in recent years through emotional times of my life. I realised that I can wonderfully express  my feelings by means of words. When I feel anxious. excited, philosophical or sad the words sometimes just come freely. However, I cannot decide to go and sit and write a poem - I have to feel inspired - maybe it is the artist'ns temperament they talk about..
   Ek het my gedigte gegroepeer in verskeie kategorieë, waar ek dink dit pas die beste in. Sommiges is op die end sommer so deurmekaar.
   Ek wil hê julle moet hierdie gedigte geniet, dalk geïnspireer word daardeur, miskien bemoedig of verryk word. Ek moet sê dat ván hulle dalk drasties klink(veral dié oor geloof), maar toe ek hulle geskryf het het ek drasties gevoel. Neem dit in, waardeer dit, gooi weg dit waarvan jy nie hou of waarmee jy nie saamstem nie en behou die goeie..
   En asseblief - moenie my gedigte steel nie? Ek glo almal wat dit gaan lees het darem eerlikheid en integriteit.

My droom is om hierdie gedigte op te neem in 'nn klein formaat bundeltjie met die naam 
Deur die vensters van my siel
- deur Annette Coetzee

   I have grouped my poems in different categories where I felt they fit best. Some is however just thrown together at the end.
   I want you to enjoy my poems - be inspired, enriched by it. Some of them (especially those on belief) may sound drastic, but that was how I felt when they were written - drastic. Take it in, appreciate it, discard those you don'nt like or don'nt agree with, but at the end - embrace the good ones..

And please - do not steal my poems? I assume everyone who is going to read them will have honesty and integrity.

My dream is to someday have these poems in a small format book called 
Through the windows of my sou
- by Annette Coetzee
