Life Saving Journey


Changing my path for the career of my dreams

it hasnt been easy, I've stifled many screams

Working full time while taking many a course

and stressing about the great unknown in full force

I can't see the light but when I finally do

The reward will be great and paycheck will too

For nursing is the career of a lifetime

To complete just one program and then it is mine

I will study and stress

And endure much duress

To finally see the light at the end...

But the light at the end is only the beginning

For I will be a nurse and then I am winning

A challenge, a fulfillment, a chance to help and heal

A way to make a living,  the stress I want to feel

Because through this process I will be helping others

But at the end of the day I'll be saving myself.
