Verses to conquer depression

Saša Milivojev - Sasha Milivoyev


Grateful to the skies

And the darkest nights,

To the moon and stars

That are my night’s lights.

Morning and the Mosques

That wake me unsleeping,

When hopes of new victories

Upon me are awakening.

Through these empyrean gardens

Where black gold is flowing,

No wicked thoughts are growing.

No sadness and hunger,

Resentment and pain,

Here, one can love again.

In the warm desert

Thirsting for love.


Grateful my life,

To the blue infinity of freedom

To the Sun that shines the light

That gilts the sands with golden flames

And the Sea that hums a lullaby

Whose waters rise and fall with tide.

Drown the troubles, surface blessedness,

Here, where every cry diminishes.

Grateful to the Nature, Earth and Water

For the yields,

Sweet fruits,

Bees on flowers,

Honeyed lips,

Coconut in the palms of my hands

And the wild beasts

That emboldened me.

The compassionate

And the charitable.

To the seed of men,

Mothers that birth

Children that warm our hearts

And the old that leave this Earth,

And the snakes that devour the pests,

And the bird that on your shoulder rests,

And a camel that winks with her eye,

That knows how to smile.

So rejoice,

now and not tomorrow.


May the world be as such,

Life a song without a wail

Serene like a fairytale.
