This week I gave up being a nurse I worked my final shift. This week I showed my children From your values never drift. Take the shot or turn in my keys I just ran out of time. The email laying out my fate Burned forever in my mind. No choice, no say, no exemptions heard The mandate made it clear. I must comply to keep my job Sacrificing my health, I fear. I look my husband in the eyes He's got to make enough. Pushing the fears he will be next Paying the mortgage will be rough. Standing strong in my conviction I do accept my fate. Watching those around me fold The pressure they could not take. Next they come for the children Since the adults all complied. Up to date or keep them home From the health pass you can't hide. Times are dark as people divide The hate you can't ignore. To free this world we must only stand Christ's love will win this war.
