Poetry from Maja Milojkovic

Maja Milojkovic

You who are the servant of darkness,
hide behind wealth, power, and lies
but I'm immune to it.
You can't take away my right to freedom,
my life belongs to God,
you can't ruin my poem,
woven from prayerful thoughts
sung in praise of all poets
which breathe in the rhythm of peace for the whole planet.
We are poets like flowers,
we sprout from tiny seeds, carried by the wind, rooted in the ground.
Watered with water from rainy clouds sun-breastfeed.
Our common strength is
in the beauty of thought,
about equality
about satiety
in the absence of war.
We build heavenly gardens from letters
and send clear messages to everyone.
Do not be afraid people, let the peace of God reign!
You, who are hidden, will not stop causing people unrest
and various diseases, but I will not stop, I will defeat you with a poem.
Verses have the power to melt all hard hearts, to forget what evil is,
when in the prayer song for forgiveness, they find their peace.


Insects are attracted to the street light at night, so the heart that is open to the love of this world, the closer to the source of the street light dies because of the desire to unite with something that is doomed to die.

  1. “We build heavenly gardens from letters

    Do not be afraid people, let the peace of God reign!”

    I also think of writing as a form of prayer and was powerfully moved by your words of God-filled defiance. Your poems are not only well-written but speak about the human condition. As a Catholic writer myself, I see man’s relationship with God as part of the human condition.
