BEING AN ESSENTIAL WORKER

By    

I have been working in the healthcare field
for over 20 years now
I worked all different shifts
long and hard
I love my job
I understand the consequences
of not wearing a mask
in public or in stores
but ever since they made it a law
I wear it in stores and in public
I wear it doing am and pm
on my clients
feeling smothered and hot
I get lightheaded
hard to breath sometimes
we make sacrifices for others
but my safety and the safety of others
comes first ad foremost
to me
so , I say to all
Wear the mask to protect yourself
and your loved ones
you do not want to be sorry
for the wrong reason
Be safe and keep well
