Mission my Ambition

For 22 years my dad was “pushing the rock”

Each day at work was spent watching the clock

 

I realized a career could be a weight or a mission

The latter of which has become my ambition

 

That’s why nursing is so important to me

Because helping others truly feels me with glee

 

I want my dreams to come to fruition

But first I need some help with tuition 

 

Growing up isn’t always easy and fun

Well maybe except when you turn twenty-one

 

It’s your concerns, really, that change with time

What once was curfew is now nickel and dime

 

Don’t get me wrong there are positives too

Wisdom and drive to name a few

 

Ultimately, I hope to gain more with each passing year

And for my meaning in life to become even more clear

 

I want to look back and be so content

I know with nursing my time will be well spent

 

This poem is about: 
Me
