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


My painful heart is cracked long ago

My painful heart has cracked long ago,
My houses remain behind me.
When my hair turns grey and all unrests are gone,
whose God am I going to pray to?

When I wake up in a bed of white roses
and look through the window of my life,
which Sun is going to warm up my body,
and which Clouds will be my refuge.

Am I strong enough to confront own self,
to touch gently my own arm.
Am I to bow to my ancestors’ graves.
Am I to find solace when I open a door.

My bone marrow will remain when I’m gone,
and my soul will depart to a new constellation.
Can I say farewell to myself,
knowing that life has to start again?
