Wearied by the vagaries of a hard ,

and cruel life on the street.

Sick and admitted into the hospital.

Moved in like I just rented a room in the hospital.

Do not call me homeless ,I know.

Moved in with all my belongings into the hospital.

A few ragged belongings in plastic bags.

Do not call me homeless,I know.

Two Nursing assistants brought my hospital supplies

toothpaste,toothbrush,lotion and gown.

One of the nursing assistants held her nose.

Ignored her, I know why.

I stink like a rotten egg.

Do not call me homeless,I know.

The Charge nurse walked in,

and pinched her nose.

Have not showered in weeks.

Do not call me homeless,is not my name.

My primary nurse walked in ,introduced herself.

And started data collection immediately

Went well until she asked for my address.

No address to give.

Are you homeless she asked?.

Do not call me homeless,it is not my name.

I cannot recall my address I replied.

I RESPECT YOU.(POEM BY PHILOMENA N OKEKE )

I Respect you,show me some. Respect should be Reciprocated. Respect is virtue. Respect is to acknowledge. We all love to be respected. But liars are hard to detect. I promise to respect you,not to inspect. Respect me without symbol or status. If you respect me,I will respect you. In every situation,we should discuss with respect. No shaming but respect. No third party but respect. Third party comes in,if we cannot solve the problem. And should not lead to disrespect. Our mistakes should be opportunity for growth. Not to dwarf growth. Respect is understanding of boundaries. Wear my underwear is disrespect. Occupy my space is disrespect. Go into my wallet that is not respect. Open my mails is disrespect. Respect is not disrespect. It allows me to control what is mine.

NO EXCUSES.(POEM BY PHILOMENA N.OKEKE )

Let there be no excuses.

Excuse is lack of focus.

My parents were very poor.

That is excuse for failure.

Their poverty should not be excuse for.

Rather a great opportunity for.

Check out Oprah Winfrey,Alan Gerry,

Kenny Trouth ,Howard Schultz were among

the riches people in the world.

Their parents were very poor.

How many were born with silver

spoons in their mouth?

Atleast not in my mouth

Dream big and take action.

Practice how to behave.

Let your practice be a habit.

Refrain yourself from bad language.

“Everyone is the carver or maker of his or her

own fortune or misfortune.”

Make the best out of life.

Be moderate in all things.

Develop a good temperament.

Have good health and happiness.

Virtue is an asset that will elevate you.

There is equal opportunity for you.

Difference between poor and rich.

Is all about choices that we make.

The mind is very powerful.

Therefore the mind cannot be idle.

An idle mind is a devil workshop.

Train your mind in the right direction.

And smile to the bank.

Train your mind in the wrong direction.

Blame yourself for lack of riches.

“you wanna fly,you got to give up the shit that weighs you down”

-Toni Morrison,Song of Solomon.

Well train mind is a beautiful garden.

Untrain mind is a desert.

Develop your mental capacity.

Think right and do right.

Replace sadness with love.

Turn negativity into positive thoughts.

Smile,you can do this.

You got the desire and the will.

entertainment)

Why Do So Many People Want To Be A Nurse?

Is it because of their cute uniforms?

Or because their parents want them to be a Nurse.

Because they love taking care of the sick.
They believe in health Promotion and Disease Prevention.

Or because of Job Security?

Okay because they will get good health insurance and good Benefit Package.

Simply because you want to work in the hospitals.

Is it because they could interact with so many different people.

Or you want to influence change and become different than before.

Or you want to be the agent of change.

Because you want to be knowledgeable about health and Pathophysiology.

Because you want to be Healthcare Professional.

No matter what is your motivation,I encourage you to find your niche and make sure that you LOVE what you are doing.Because Nursing is great but sometimes emotional draining and could be Challenging depending on your areas of specialization.
