I smile at the patients wheeling in,
Ignoring the mask cutting my skin.
I brush aside my own headache,
To tend to the countless lives at stake.
My people's applause resounds in my ears,
My hard work appeasing their fears.
Home sweet home is a distant memory,
Thoughts of my family comforting me.
During those long, painful nights,
I brace myself to fight.
In this isolation ward,
I am a soldier without a sword.
Let us all take a minute to acknowledge and appreciate the commendable efforts of our doctors and nurses during these troubled times.
