From the Back Cover
Voices have spoken
Throughout my life
To joy and strife
Stating their views
In perfect rhyme
They show me life
All of the time
Varied and true
The songs they sing
So I write down
Message they bring
Share magic, love
Sorrow and pain
Or just complain
Offer to you;
Come take a peek
You, too, may find
Solace you seek --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
About the Author
Cindy Smith was raised in upstate New York. She has worked a variety of jobs during her life--waitress, store associate, certified electronic technician. She is currently employed as an over-the-road truck driver with her husband. Cindy has lived in many states from Maine to Florida. She now resides in Indiana. Through all her experiences, she had voices in her head dictating poems. The voices would not relent until Cindy wrote the poems down. She invites you to eavesdrop. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

And, so, I’ll pivot from her poem, “Opinion,” through which she appeals to each invited guest:
I want you to read
With an open heart and mind
Honestly tell me
Your opinion, but be kind
You’re my sister, friend
And I truly want to know
What you think of them
That said, I gave my rapt attention to every autobiographical revelation—“Seasons”:
I love the changing seasons.
They help me understand my life
The poetess shares relatable personal experiences brimming with honesty, accuracy, and imagery on varied subjects such as: loss of a newborn; a son grappling with drug addiction; a mother succumbing to Alzheimer’s; the progression of love from its initial dreamlike state to demise on the heels of mistrust, faultfinding, and accusations; an endearing and enduring marriage; rays of hope inherent in the dawn of a new day.
I highly recommend 'Voices in My Head' which reveals the vast array of emotions “always seesawing through our lives.”
There were some I could so relate to, some I couldn't relate to at all, some lighthearted and some heavyhearted. I know there are at least some poems that everyone can relate to in reading this!
A couple of the poems I felt I was intruding on Cindy's life, they felt so deeply personal. Yet in thinking back after I finished reading, I can see that Cindy is sharing her journey in these poems and it's not an intrusion, it's a reflection of experiences that may help others.
If you enjoy poetry books, I think you should give this a read!
you are going through. You could feel her soul on every page. You can tell much of the beauty comes from pain, but that is what it is all about. Bearing your very soul in your art is always a prize winning performance. This work of heart will long be remembered. I will treasure this collection for years to come.
