now, I don’t have exactly favourite poet, nor do I spend great amount of time in search of poems, luckily people who wrote our school program choose several really good poets, so there’s Branko Miljković, probably the only one who’s poems I looked up. Mostly because of few verses from his poem “Poeziju će pisati svi” (Poetry will be written by everybody):
Ko ne ume da sluša pesmu, slušaće oluju
and
Hoće li sloboda umeti da peva
kao što su sužnji pevali o njoj
these lyrics are in capital letters in the poem (As they are in the original)

Everyone Will Write Poetry
dream is an ancient and forgotten truth
that no one can verify anymore
foreign lands are singing now as sea and worries
east is west from the west, false movement is the fastest
now wisdom and birds of my forsaken disease are singing
flower between ash and a smell
those who refuse to survive love
and lovers turning back time
garden whose smells earth doesn’t recognize
and soil that stays faithful to the fire
because this world isn’t Sun’s only concern
but one day
where heart was Sun will stand
and human speech will no longer have words
which poem would deny
Everyone will write poetry
truth will exist in all the words
in the places where poem is the most beautiful
the one who started it first will retreat
leaving poem to the others
I accept the great thought of future poets:
one unhappy man can not be a poet
I accept the judgment of the singing crowd:
THOSE WHO CAN NOT STAND THE SONG SHALL LISTEN TO THE STORM
but:
WILL FREEDOM ITSELF SING
AS SLAVES HAVE SUNG OF IT
