Spotlight and review of Cindy J Smith's Voices in My Head and They Won't Shut Up


Cindy J Smith is an amazing poet who has voices in her head that will not shut up until she writes down their words. These voices come to her as she is driving huge semi's as an over the road (otr) truck driver! Hence the name of her two books, Voices In My Head and They Won't Shut Up. Two truly amazing wonderful selections of poems by a woman with a big heart who has been through loss and grief, Love and hope, all of her feelings right there on paper for all of us to read and feel as well. What I truly like about these poems is they are straight forward, although thought provoking you do not have to read a line and figure out what she is feeling or what she might have thought we would feel while reading said poems. This beautiful woman has gone through a very hard time and I am so happy that I have had the chance to read through her poetry and I hope you all take the chance as well. They are truly amazing.

All about Cindy

Author Bio:

Cindy Smith was born in southern NY State and raised in a small town in Upstate NY.  Cindy has lived in many different states from Maine to Florida, in this wonderful country. She now resides in Indiana, with her husband.  She has worked a variety of jobs during her life- waitress, department store associate, certified electronic technician. She is currently employed as an over the road trucker.  When she is not working or composing poems, Cindy likes to read, listen to music and do arts and crafts. 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. Cindy self-published her first book of poetry, Voices in my Head in November 2011. Her second, They Won't Shut Up was released by CH&BB Publishing July 13.


"They Won't Shut Up" is Cindy J. Smith's second book of poetry in which she explains life as she sees it. Her poems deal with emotions and conflicts that are universal to the human condition - pain, love, suffering, joy and loss. Cindy J. Smith writes of dreams and magic, she writes of the moments we live that are woven subtly into the fabric of our lives and nature's beauty. Several special poems have been added to the end of "They Won't Shut Up", written by Jasmine McMurtrey Reindl, Smith's late daughter.


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
