It started as a game,
When we were younger.
We gave ourselves fake names,
While making sure our "patient" became stronger.
There are times we sit down,
Wondering where our lives will lead us.
I desire to put on that surgical gown,
To assist the doctor in success.
I want to care,
Love, guide, and support.
To save someone's air,
As the first resort.
I study all night,
Because one day, a nurse I'll be.
I will put up my very best fight,
for people like you and me.
