The N95 mask .

The mask that I know.We understand all the instructions before use.

We follow all OSHA guidelines

such as training, fit testing and medical evaluation to meet up with OSHA specific requirements.

Do not alter, misuse,wash,or abuse.

We got that.

You give 95% Protection.

The mask with confidence.

The mask I trust.

I threw you away after each use like an old used cigarette.

Can you meet me in the middle?.

No fear of contamination.

I don’t sweet and spit into you.

But the New mask that I don’t trust.

You gave me scar on my face.

I worry about you all the time.

I wear you for eight hours.

Just because you said so.

Have you no shame?.

So many left because of you.

You look filthy,sweaty not fresh.

So many of my colleagues had changed their addresses to heaven due to inadequate protection.No PPE.

They are our super heroes.

They cried and lamented but their voices were relegated to the background.

We need some emotional support.

So many of us fell down seven times.

But get up ten times.

Hopefully some day a messiah will come to salvage us from our predicament.

Meanwhile we keep on keeping on.

Be Strong it will come to pass.

And you will share your stories.

Healthcare providers.
