Resurrection – Samantha Robertson

I’m one with the sounds

Many thanks to Samantha Robertson for her rousing poem. We really appreciate her decision to support the project.


Rhythms shake my ennui;

allowing a ripple of existence to emerge

from within.

I dance to the Bossa Nova;

embrace the music

until I’m one with the sounds

emanating from the drums.

I’ve been woken from my slumber –

dragged out of the depths of depression

by the sound of song.

Freed to express

the joie de vivre that exists in me –

once hidden, buried deep.

Samantha Robertson
