The Choice of a Nurse

Location

The sick and the dying,

The needy and the hopeless,

Who do they look to for aspiration?

The strong and the immune,

The lucky and hopeful,

Who do they look to for guidance?

Today we, the people, live in a world of love and hate

Driven by those who make their alliances with others like themselves.

And who are the “them” I speak of?

Them…

Those who chose to hate and destroy in this world

Them…

Those to choose to love and contribute in this world

Them…

A nurse…

Them…

Me.

I choose the path of those who help.

The sick and the dying,

The needy and the hopeless,

They look to a nurse for assistance;

A nurse to shelter them in their most vulnerable state

To give them guidance in their lives.

I choose the path of a nurse.

The strong and the immune,

The lucky and hopeful,

We look to the weak to give us some sort of will to continue,

To help,

To never give up in those who need us.

The choice to teach me that everyone needs

A helping hand sometimes

The choice to give back to those who teach me that life is not

Always loving.

Now it is my choice;

The choice to be a nurse.

I have chosen to become a nurse to help those in need. Being a nurse will change my life becasue it will give me the oppurtunity to learn from those less fortunate than me and one day, I will be able to give back to those who taught me. This relationship of understanding those around me is important to me and I choose to make this happen by becoming a nurse.
