A Nursing Soliloquy

  1. A path through the mind and decision making process of another. It is purely fictional...I think.

    I really wanted to love it, God knows I did
    It was an exciting journey nonetheless,
    Some moments I enjoyed, some moments I hated

    But I welcomed them all the same and learned what each had to teach.
    I tried my hardest
    I tried my darn-est; I was very good at what I did
    I sought ways to excel; every problem was an opportunity
    Daily, I did one thing that improve me from the day before
    It was a motto I lived by
    Content I was not to be merely a wheel
    A difference I sought to make
    Altruistic, you say? Altruistic, I was not.
    How could I?
    True to me, it wouldn't be!

    An impact I wanted to make, so boldly to it, I stepped
    And my course I swiftly recharted, God willing.
    It was scary at first- the beginning always is
    There was trepidation; there was fear
    I said a prayer and barreled on.
    On my oars I did not rest.

    I knew my actions had to show my seriousness and determination;
    My prayers had to have a fuel to burn with
    So doggedly I pursued this course fraught with obstacles
    And slowly but surely, as the sun appears on the horizon
    My calling I had found and then there was rest.

    I embraced it; it was a job and yet it was not
    I bounced into each day ready to start.
    No longer did I dread what the day might hold

    Get me not wrong, please I pray
    Challenges abound but I welcome them, for obstacles I see them not
    But rather as opportunities to get even better
    Aaaaaahhh the sound of me, a deep sigh I give
    When you truly come into your own, you always do know
    For there is peace and quiet
    It does not always speak the loudest but the tinniest voice is that with the greatest impact
    A myriad of expressions cross my face
    But I am rested in knowing that I have found my life's calling
