Maid Čorbić‘s poem: Swimming through stages of emotion

I am going through an incarnation

I enjoy watching myself in that water

how I go through every wave of trouble

and I just want to be happy

somewhere out there far from all people

in spite of everything, I fall to the bottom

I force myself to be smiling at everybody,

towards the world, but it does not go lightly 


but what can I do with my life?

when I can’t be happy with everyone?

I keep my emotions deep in my soul

I don’t like to tell everyone how I feel

and I can’t get over some memories

because emotions are very difficult 

and conflict of attitude

I often experience with least hope

how does life take me forward

when the memories of the old man hurt me

love is a hard thing for me and feeling

fades every moment I realise

that I was no one’s toy

I swim in the depths and don’t get out of the corner

the worst thing is to be sad now

for no one loves to be the tears of my saint

how do i go on with my life?

all out of love, I took a risk

and never got back anything in return

that’s what keeps me from moving on

there are no experiences of any difference

with which I consciously struggle

I always considered myself stronger than anything

swimming through emotions 

every year I drive myself into the abyss. 

because love is hard when it goes mysterious in the summer

and I often realise that I was just 

a moment in the past dark time, for her!
