Biography

Noris Roberts I was born in the city of Puerto La Cruz, Venezuela Graduated as a lawyer in Universidad Santa Maria, in Caracas, Venezuela In 2002, “The Mirror of the Soul”, a collection of poems, was published in a limited edition that was sold privately to gather funds for a healthcare foundation for poverty stricken children. At the present time I am working on my second collection of poems by "Whose fault is it?" which is a connection between injustice and hope. I’m also in the process of writing a Literary Diary which will published soon. My work has been translated into: English, French, Italian and Portuguese and I have participated in multitudinous online literary magazines and published in several international poetry anthologies. I have 2 websites: "De Letra en Letra" and "Palabras Pinceladas". Both have part of my work and include poems and short stories published in Spanish, English, French and Italian. Both websites include sections which other authors have published their poems. For my constant work on behalf of the international relations and human sciences, culture and for increasing worldwide relations amongst people, I was appointed to represent Venezuela as Universal Ambassador of Peace from Cercle Universel des Ambassadeurs De La Paix France/Suisse, and in 2014 I was awarded with Naji Naaman’s Literary Prize for my poem “Mi poesía es” and named honorary member of Maison Naaman pour la Culture. I am currently carrying out an on-going project in where I publish in YouTube my poems, that are read or sung by people from any country and in any language. This, up to now, has involved poets, singers, musicians, broadcasters, among others, and is intended to convey a message of love, peace, freedom. Through this I aim to unite people, avoid political boundaries, avoid religious conflicts, discrimination, etc. Everything is done “Pro Bono”. Results: 31 videos up to now. Recently some of my poems have been used as lyrics for songs. This for me has been something very exciting and enjoyable. To sum everything up: I struggle with the upmost conviction that we can build a better world through love, tolerance and peace, without boundaries or prejudices. I firmly believe that people should share and exchange ideas, feelings and thoughts. http://www.youtube.com/user/NorisRoberts

Samples

LIBERTY EXPIRES Liberty expires Fixed on its listless days, man struggles in poverty, harsh loneliness invades his face, eyelids shrink and sweat Everything stops Liberty expires, Pleas are unheard, Prisoner, powerless, shouts urgent litigation, no matter how late, needs to be in the dawn of roses ...and nobody listened Despair seeds impotence Autumn is unable to hide the venous projectiles of his misfortune ...And goes on sleepy, under the same roof, kisses the soil that saw his birth No one misses him In the bitter load of his destiny, wanting to wake in the confessional of justice Almost impossible. ©Noris Roberts Translated by Timothy Adès.

I was just introduced to your poetry through "Into the Bardo". Wow! You are an amazing person, my sorrows were uplifted simply by your words. When one is struggling with the pain and suffering from a deep injustice your words match those feelings and brought me comfort!

May you be blessed to continue your good work and please keep informed when there is any way that we can help!
I am struggling to make a connection myself between injustice and hope right now, so I am looking forward to your new project.
