THE POETESS …. THE DEDICATED WOMAN TO PEACE
Nova Kerkeb is a universal poetess who considers herself as a citizen of the world. She started writing at the age of 7 while she started writing her very first poems. She is a Graduate in economic sciences and studied business management as well.
She grew up in a multi-lingual environment and she is fluent in French, English, Spanish (literary Arabic and dialects) and has taken courses of Russian and Italian as well. As a child, Nova was very much impregnated by the principles of humanity, solidarity and freedom which are in her point of view very essential to Peace. She grew up in a family which was very dedicated to Africa’s liberation and was influenced by her beloved father. As a matter of fact, her father had widely contributed to the freedom fighting movement in Africa and has supported Nelson Mandela in his cause ever since 1961 at an early stage of the history.
After a long journey between Africa, Northern & Central America, the Baltics and Asia: she now lives in Europe.
She has published two anthologies, the first one dedicated to her father untitled “In souffrances tues” i.e “Untold sufferings” in 2015 and a second one untitled “…De rêves et de chimères de paix” i.e “Dreams and chimera of peace” in 2016.
TITLE OF THE POEM:
When some will wish hatred I will wish you love And when others will hate you
I will love you When they will leave you on the ground and will crush you with hooves
I will raise you up and offer you a home
For me too I am just passing through just like you, us, them?
If I had pearls I will share them with you
So that they replace your tears to replace your weapon
So that your heart becomes good
Compassionate with the hungry
I will break your chains and infuse within you Freedom and Love!
