Lost in a world of torment, when will it ever end?

Suffering in silence,

I try to internally mend,

through the continual dismissive acts and derogatory comments,

what was the aim of this game?

Why was I made to feel ashamed?

At this time I did not have a clue,

what lay ahead as only God knew,

fighting Covid was another battle,

fighting for life, breath, for my family

to see another day, although I recovered

the aches and pains would not go away,

why am I not being believed?

Is it my race or my colour?

what God did next was made me discover -

Equality for Black Nurses!

Helped keep me sane through the sleepless nights and days of despair with Neomi at my side- she helped me repair!

Listening to others stories,

I know I am not alone - let's unite together

our days of suffering will soon be gone

lets thank God our paths have crossed

making a difference to our future- to ensure

the unjust stories are not ignored and lost.

We believe that there should be greater transparency and accountability when reporting proven incidence of racism due to subjective and unjustified behaviour towards Black Nurses
