Excruciating Physical Pain

Shows that you’re vulnerable
Dampens your spirits
Cuts like a knife
Can start the flow of tears
Thinking becomes lessened
Lose interest of material things
Mind directed on the pain
What steps are taken next
Remembering your loved ones
Flashback to survival

Love Conquers All

I learned that
Through the struggles,
Through the pain.

One thing remains…

Love of God and others
Helps take it away,
Day by day.

War and Its Emotional Effects

these days my brother was mortally wounded in 1992…

“Can you briefly tell me what he said in the letter that is vital for us to know?  What do you remember as IMPORTANT in the words that he left for you?????”

in wounds on the battlefield lying wounded…

“You sound very hurt from this terrible war?  It must have been so bad”

worse than you think…

what about the novel that I possess

“tell me of your novel?”

this is unpublished novel about the war in bosnia

i want to publish in USA, need a publisher

“are you writing this?”

it is written in the war in war conditions

“Your brother left this behind you told me earlier, now I remember”

“Bosnia sounds like a great name for your country!”

bosnia sounds like carol

history says that bosnia was three

“Has it been published in your country?  To tell of the pain?”

Christmas so Bright (2012)

Christmas decorations all so bright
In the glistening snow of white
On this wintery cold night

It is an awesome, beautiful sight
When you see the blinking light
On this wintery cold night

Families gathered around so tight
For the meal to soon take plight
On this wintery cold night

Thoughts went to the Saviour’s might
The reason for peace and not to fight
On this wintery cold night

Greetings to all of you this Christmas and
Wishing you all happiness, joy, peace and love!

They guide you
They protect you
They message you
They direct you
They tell you
They influence you
They lead you
They help you
They inform you
They love you
