Dream vocation, you can hear it calling,
You vow to yourself.. Provide advocay and protection.
Dusting pen and paper off the shelf, building trust,
I underestimated that every word is clung to-
Even when you are a first year, uniform shiny and new.
There is no place for an off day, and no rest, I have to give my best.
Seniors, mentors, midwives - they can build you up or tear you down.
Give the power to the patients, the people, women......
Power to the women!
I hate having to say 'please put on this hospital gown.'
Women are brave, magic, fierce
I have seen them transform.... lionesses,
birth can look so effortless.
You're a force of nature, powerful, primal, strong.
I try to remember that i am human,
as another shift ends, emotionally spent.
Mind buzzing, I absorb the events.
To women everywhere, I feel honoured and in awe-
I hope I helped just a little bit,
And I hope to help much more.
