You had no idea
When you came into the room
of the 21 year old new mom
that you were making a lasting
Is that what caring is about? She thought.
No choices for the wounded,
Must get the work done
No matter how much it hurts her.
Oblivious to the pain,
Physical mostly, but now emotional, too.
All because you had to get it done "now,"
And clock out on time.
Little did you know,
the result of your ice cold exterior -
and her Horrible Patient Experience
Would take her from Patient
To Professional Caregiver
Who has never forgotten.
