Vida Nenadic


TO MY FRIENDS


It is painful
to live in this time and age.

It is painful
to look at the nonsense around us.

It is painful
to be far from you.

It is painful
that this complex globe
parts us more
than connects us.

It is painful
to live through wars and evils,
created by the unhappiness of some people.

It is painful
to see you only occasionally.

It is painful
to know you less than I used to.

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,

The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
