Momma always used to say, “God laughs at the plans you make.”
But that was just a chance I had to be willing to take.
Empathetic, kind-hearted, containing the true values of life
It’s time to step out and take on the next strife.
Going to college working hard for that “A”
Struggling to keep up with your every day to day
Taking on the role of President in the nursing club P.A.I.N.
While volunteering at the hospital, trying to stay sane….
Once you get that letter of acceptance you’re abounding with glee
Finally in nursing school, the future you are able to see
Internships wait in Argentina, Ghana, and even Nepal
Across the globe, you can try to them all
With 5 years of experience now under your belt,
A second diploma you will be dealt
Your mother’s eyes swell with tears when you walk across the stage
Unbelieving to those who did not imagine you would make it past this page
With your finances safe from to dangers of student loans
It’s time to get out there and become well known
“You must be the change you want to see in the world.” Mahatma Gandhi once said
So to Africa with “Doctors Without Boarders” you will now tread.
A year assisting patients’ fight AIDS and other such viruses will do you some good
Facilitating in the creation of a women’s’ clinic-you always knew you would.
It is now the seventh year and you’re back in the U.S.
Time to clean up the American mess
With your positive attitude and education from college
You join the medical field with newfound knowledge
Every day you will see mothers and babies galore
This isn’t a job; it’s something much more.
You’re bringing life into this world; delivering God’s greatest treasure
Causing brand-new mothers newborn pleasure
Always be happy and love what you do
In seven short years look how you grew.
