An iota of dream

My childhood fantasy was amazing,
My mom bought me a nurse doll.
That led me to a school of nursing,
Serving and caring for patients in hospital.

In my quiet life I loved to play as a nun
By putting a scarf on my head as a veil
So interesting I kept it like my holy fun
Yet, religious life I would like to unveil.

But life is not easy at all my dear friends,
When you depend on your own self alone.
Many temptations with these new trends,
Daily I need to listen to God’s friendly tone.

The world is changing to this present stage
Do I really need to hear God’s voice again?
Maybe God is revealing his new message,
My world and good job, do I need to bargain?

Yes, my soul thirsts for the living God only,
I will live my life with his new vision.
Not only to work physically but spiritually!
May the Lord bless me in my new mission.
