We can learn a lot about life from poems like these. How to live courageously, how to love unconditionally.

Even how to move on from broken hearts and hard times to find happiness again in something new.

Words can change the way we think about ourselves, about our lives. So take a look at some of the things Emina Gašpar-Vrana has to say — you might get more than you bargained for.
