I started to write (and dicovering my literary gift) after sudden death of my mother in 1996. Writing was a certain kind of therapy for me, exhaust valve, where I could express all my thoughts and pain and put it on a piece of paper. I lost my mother, but gain two sisters - poetry and prose. Seven years after we published it with help of my family, friends and school teachers. All poems were written in two languages- my native Croatian and English language. I have to mention that I am author of English versions as well.

Sometimes original poem was created in Croatian and sometimes in English, and then I would translate it to other language. And this gives additional value to my work, as well as a fact The Beginning is first published bilingual poetry book in history of my country.Of course, you can see childish mistakes, and in the same time thoughts that goes beyond my ages when I was writing those verses, but I wont lecture or change anything, because this is also something special - a blend of childish language barriers and in the same time deep, profund and painful lyrics.Unfortunately, poetry is on margins of our world, but in the same time so essential for our existence, as art in general.

We need true art, real values, just like we need food, water and air.... We often dont realize that without art, impression, inspiration and emotion which real art transmits, we dont live this life to the fullest.I hope with help of technology that this book of poems will reach many readers and touch many hearts. Lets give a chance to real values, true art... And to poetry.After 11 years of initial publishing, I am brining back The Beginning to life for second time...

And I hope this time, these verses will have a chance to live to the fullest... Because now finally whole world can read it...I would like to thank everyone who is going to dive into my poems and in the same time I would like to apologize if they made you cry. Actually, no... I wont apologize.

If I made tears running down your face, that means I touched you and that is one of the roles and purposes of art. Touching someone from a distance with a word, letter, a song... It is something wonderful.Your confirmation will be greatest gift to me and in the same time strength to carry on, because it is really difficult to be a poet in todays world...
