It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare, it is because we do not dare that they are difficult. - Seneca

RAINDROPS, by Besa Kosova


"God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change…" are the words that echo through my being when I think of RAINDROPS.

See, life sometimes has unexpected storms in store, and regardless of how hard we try to protect ourselves from it, the storm appears to be stronger and can consequently defeat us. These poetic moments are raindrops during one of my life's storms. Each and every one is a moment lived, raw and unedited…written as it happened.

Even though the story reaches a different ending than one initially hoped and fought for, it proves that, in life, there is a time to confront the storm, but there is also a time when we must get the "…courage to change the things we can."

And with doing that, as long as we have "…the wisdom to know the difference," it makes the journey through the storm all the more worthwhile.

Then, and only then, sunshine breaks through.
Besa Kosova discovered her passion for poetry and writing in elementary school. The first poem she wrote - at age six- was about peace. At age eight, she decided to become a writer. Since then, she has not stopped writing. Besides writing, she enjoys more writing and allot of reading. She is a single mother and has two children, Nathaniel and Gentiana.
