An artwork and poem inspired by the Virtual Writing Class I am taking with Maria Brophy on Maria is a wonderful instructor and mentor. Thank you for this week’s session. There has been a lot I have been working through on my own, and I am so happy to have a community of writers to talk, write and share with. I feel like I took a BIG deep breath today.


An Original Poem by Christine Samad

Release the feelings that hold you back,

Your fears are unfounded,

All of the things you think you lack,

Are the things that have kept you bounded.

Call upon the Strength inside,

It lives in your true Nature.

The Spirit and Light you carry burn so bright,

Take a deep breath, and don’t wait for

The stars and planets to align,

They are already in your favor.

Let your tears nourish the barren heart,

On which you faithfully and firmly stand,

Though you have been fractured from the start,

You have been strengthened, not eternally damned,

Believe in the things you love. Find hope in the future that you seek.

The visions you are thinking of, have willingly been Released.
