Best Poem of Robert Longley

Finding Your Voice

It used to be so easy
And then something changed
All you took for granted
Is suddenly rearranged

It’s not the way you planned it
Not in your wildest dreams
Cruel it is this universe
Or sometimes does it seem

You’ve gained a little insight
Despite a sense of loss
It’s not unlike a ball
That at times you want to toss

There is no one way to view it
It all comes down to choice
To reach within your being
And find again your voice

Read the full of Finding Your Voice

In The Garden

To those of you before me
I say be not afraid
You see me standing hereto
And you see where I was laid

My hands they do the telling
For those who don’t believe
Though yet you may not touch me
Your eyes do not deceive

[Hata Bildir]
