I AM DEDICATING THIS POEM TO ALL THE NURSES 

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
