I BECAME A NURSE… (and a curse)

Written by by nikko0420


I became a nurse,

Not for arrogant people to curse,

It’s not the penny in our purse,

But because we love our job, even at its worse.

I became a nurse because I love my profession,

It’s something I never did in a confession,

It may not be obvious in my expression,

But believe me, I’m not into impression.


I became a nurse and aimed for a greener pasture,

But what did I get with my graduation picture?

Seeking for an experience turned into expenditure,

Dreams sourly crooked into moisture.


I became a nurse and ended as a volunteer,

Might as well be People Support’s mighty musketeer,

Can’t the government hear our sentiments oh dear,

Or maybe they just need to fix their ear.


I became a nurse, not to be a recipient of a yell.

Our ears are not meant to be a bell,

Nor our teardrops from our eyes to fell,

All we want is to be treated very well.


I became a nurse and sacrificed everything,

Saving a person’s life is something,

I wouldn’t exchange with anything,

Even if in return, I get nothing.


When darkness fill in your life story,

It’s not too late to regret or to feel sorry,

You don’t need to carry heavy loads in your lorry,

‘Coz God is there, so fellow nurse, don’t worry! 🙂

      saving lives is everything and not something.

    Nice blog, but please proofread, to fall, not – to fell. Thanks

      She wanted to maintain the rhyme. Be more tolerant please.

    • MASI

      “Poetry wasn’t written to be analyzed; it was meant to inspire without reason, to touch without understanding.”

      • Jeffrey

        You nailed it!

      • Erick toledo

        We analyze poetry in academic subjects. I’ve never seen any written prose or poetry with error/s in grammar in my whole life. So, is it ok to write with grammatical errors just to inspire? You could ask your technical writing teacher in high school if she/he would agree with you . . . kkk

        • Jeffrey

          Why don’t you ask the ENGLISH speaking people?
          Have you heard the song She Don’t Love Me sung by Blake Shelton? Technically/grammatically it is wrong. There are many songs with lyrics(poems) that are technically incorrect, but they are acceptable (at least for most people, even English speaking ones). And dangerous to young people? ROFL.

        • Sahlee

          Technical writing should be regarded as a discipline while creative writing like poetry is an art. Eric Toledo still don’t get it, I think.

          • Erick toledo

            Erick Toledo still DOESN’T get it, that’s another grammatical blunder my dear; that’s alarming.

    • Sahlee

      You can always be grammatically correct, but lacking of substance.

  • Erick toledo

    I can understand that the writer wanted to put in sync the rhyme on her blog but ergo, that’s dangerous, for people – especially the young ones- might think it’s correct to put a past form of the verb in an infinitive phrase. 🙂
