Customer Review: Poems for everyday living
By Philip Nork on March 27, 2013

Voices in My Head, a collection of poems ranging from happy to sad, is a wonderful read. Even if you don’t regularly read poems, this book will have one that touches you in some way. They are from the heart and touch your soul. I found myself relating to so many of them. These are words to learn from, lessons to live by and a way to remember the past.

I was impressed by the openness of the author as she shared some of her lives successes, sorrows and feelings. This is a book that should be bought and put in your bookshelf to re-read over and over. There is a poem for every emotion you feel.

I recommend this collection to anyone–those who need a lift up or those who want to remember a certain moment from the past. Kudos to the author!

They Won’t Shut Up
by Cindy J. Smith (Goodreads Author)

Voices in my Head
Talk all of the time
To music I feel
They add rhythm and rhyme

Emotions take flight
Grief, despair and love
Heart seeks to find hope
On wings of a dove

Their view of this world
Both nature and man
New angle embellished
To help understand

Walk for a minute
In other guys shoes
See why they might feel
So lost and confused

Dreams, flights of fancy,
Sarcasm and light pun
Work through frustrations
To friendship and fun

Open myself wide
Feel pure empathy
See how this world could
With love, truly be

Listen with your soul
To songs that I share
May see way to change
This world if you dare(less)
