U dubokoj tišini

U dubokoj tišini,
tuga kao oluja jeca,
srce k'o ranjena ptica,
izgubljena u večeri
beznadežno leti.
Svetlost dana bledi,
dok suze tihe kaplju,
u mračnim očima,
bol duboko zaranja i odaje.

Pogledom
izgubljenim u daljini beskrajnoj,
tražeći odgovore u noći,
u svakoj zvezdi što sja.
Ali tišina odjekuje,
samoća kao večna pratilja,
dok srce u tišini plače,
bez glasa,
bez osećaja.

Ali u tami
postoji snaga,
kao svetionik u daljini,
nada se rađa iz pepela,
iako se čini nevidljivom.
Zvuk srca što kuca,
podseća na život koji pulsira,
lako slomljeno,
još uvek ima snage,
još uvek ima vatre.

Tako pustimo suze
neka padaju,
neka oplakuju sve što je prošlo,
ali u svakom padu,
neka se rađa nova svetlost,
nova nada.
Jer iako tuga može biti teška,
i bol duboka kao okean,
u srcu svakog ljudskog bića,
živi snaga za novi početak,
za novu emociju.

I am extremely pleased and proud to be the parent of a Savremena student. During my first encounter with the school management, when I asked about my child’s potential enrolment, I saw how much love, enthusiasm and professionalism you put in your work. I was impressed by your approach, ideas and methods. I couldn’t believe something like this existed in our country! It doesn’t take long to realise that this is a school you would recommend to everyone. Creativity, modern technology, top-quality education, and most of all, the humaneness that can be seen throughout the school, make it truly different and worthy of its name – Savremena Gimnazija. With such an approach, the success of this school and, consequently, our children’s success, is unavoidable. Congratulations! Jelena Đorđević, Andrija’s mum
