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


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

If you don’t wake up one day you’ll be sorry:
for planting sorrow into your soul,
for every difficult words uttered
wounding somebody’s heart.

You’ll be sorry for every untouched love,
and for every desire undreamt of,
for every sunflower you’ve never kissed
in a sunflower garden lit by summer heat.

You’ll be sorry you never looked in Sun’s eyes,
never made love with the Moon,
because you never allowed yourself
to be born and reborn in you again.

You’ll be sorry you’ve never taken a bath in a cold river,
and never breathed salty air.
For walking the path leading to nowhere,
for dying in fears of a life you’ve lived.

You’ll be sorry for being afraid of love,
for torturing the child in you
for stopping to laugh, celebrate, embrace,
for not living by your dreams.

When you don’t wake up one morning, you’ll be sorry…
