I love my profession being privileged to work within the medical field
I am a nurse in a hospital, but I hate to see others while they suffer
Especially those with a painful terminal illness, their fate is already sealed
Everyday I wish for others from this fate I could deter.

I see this kind of thing each and every day
I sit back and watch as others surccomb to immense and intense pain
These people are going to die anyway, so why prolong a painful life if somehow they can get away?
My heart goes out to them as they seem to have no more sunshine in life left, just undying nagging pain.

I know what pain feels like. as life has dealt me more than one bad card
Having my share of sickness, death, and pain
Really in pain's devastating hand, you could say I'm a coward
Pain really hurts and from it you have nothing to gain.

So when I see others suffer, my heart goes out to them and I want to set them free
I know I have no right to judge, but this I just can't bear to see
In my mind when I administer the drug, I am helping them go to sleep, and from their pain they can flee
I'm sure if they could talk they would thank me.

I will never get caught, I am too smart for that
So I will continue to release these poor souls, so they can go to a place free of pain
If I see you suffering, I will ut you out of your pain stat
So as I do this, I think to myself, I release you to go to a place you have everything to gain.

Hmm...Needs more
After reading your piece "Don't Go Into The Garden" I was compelled to read this piece. This one seems a little short on visuals. The main character explains why she is doing what she does, but I didn't get that visceral sense of terror that horror almost always invokes. It's not a bad piece it's just missing a little Oomph!!
