I AM DEDICATING THIS POEM TO ALL THE NURSES 

BY LOURDES TOVAR, RNC [email protected]


I WAS MERELY TWENTY SOMETHING,


WHEN I STARTED MY CAREER.


 


NURSING  WAS MY DREAM


AND NOW IT IS MY FEAR


CARING FOR THE CHILDREN IS MY PASSION


AND MY THRILL,


BUT POLITICS BEHIND IT IS


NOTHING BUT A DRILL.


IT IS TIRING AND STRESSFUL,


EVERYTHING BUT HELPFUL.


 


NEARLY 25 YEARS LATER,


I CAN FINALLY UNDERSTAND,


 


THOSE WHO I CAME AFTER


AND THE FALLOUTS


 


THAT THEY HAD


NURSING WAS MY DREAM,


 


AND NOW IT IS MY BURN OUT FEAR.


 


INSPITE OF ALL THE POLITICS,


NURSING IS STILL MY CAREER
