Sretena Anna Novic Poetry

1. Kingdom

2. Let my ashes be returned to the moon

3. Step by step of motion

4. On some staircase

5. Does the old age starts when we stop dreaming?

6. My prayer is a swanlike winged dog

7. A life passes by in front of me

8. Who is going to judge

9. I live in an armor of fear

10. In the mirror of life nothing is clear

11. I empower you to build a world and take a new road

12. If I ever die

13. Everything has its time and hour

14. A Wall

15. Awakening

16. If you don’t wake up one day you’ll be sorry

17. My painful heart is cracked long ago

18. When the shadow of the last resurrection


In the mirror of life nothing is clear

In the mirror of life nothing is clear,
either colours or shapes.
It’s not the measure of
Yesterday or Tomorrow,
regardless of what we believe.

It gives us only marks,
pictures already seen but unknown.
We are strangers to ourselves
in the mirror of life.

It is all uncertain and transitory.
Everything is alike
and different too,
never to be repeated.

This mirror shows our wrinkles,
and signs of departing,
when we are ready to go.
We perceive it with own eyes.

Life and the mirror are brothers,
unclear to themselves and to people.
Many have shrunk from them, 
taking their own life.

Mirrors are like a wheel.
turning forever void of the clear goal,
fragile and strong,
at the same time...

We are given the mirror
to weigh, and see ourselves,
to tell others who we are,
and how we continue.

The mirror is an uncertain image
we’ve created, 
out of own existence.
Just like the life itself.
