I wrote a poem for all my Paramedic mates. Obviously it won’t resonate with all of you…but just a reminder that you need to care for yourself before you can care for others….so stick your hand up if you need. xx.

– I see you –

‘When I see you through my eyes,
I see a strong and confident Paramedic who’s capable of saving the world.
When I see you through my heart, I see that you doubt your capabilities at times.

When I see you through my eyes,
I see a bright and bubbly personality that’s full of life.
When I see you through my heart, I see that you wish you could feel the fullness of life.

When I see you through my eyes,
I see that you are everyone’s saviour.
When I see you through my heart, I see that you wish someone was yours.

When I see you through my eyes,
I see that you care about your patients and their loved ones.
When I see you through my heart, I see that some patient’s leave big emotional wounds inside you that often split open without warning.

When I see you through my eyes,
I see you as the ‘popular’ one!
When I see you through my heart, I see that you feel alone a lot of the time.

When I see you through my eyes,
I see you wear that uniform with pride!
When I see you through my heart, I see that it can make you anxious sometimes.

When I see you through my eyes,
I see that you can handle any job that comes your way.
When I see you through my heart, you’re screaming out inside for fate to let you avoid them.

When I see you through my eyes,
I see that you were made for this job.
When I see you through my heart, I see that you can often feel trapped into thinking “This is all I know, this is who I am”.

When I see you through my eyes,
I see that you like how others view you – it can give you a sense of worthiness.
But when I see you through my heart, I see that sometimes you don’t feel worthy inside.

When I see you through my eyes,
I see that you always treat others from your heart.
When I see you through my heart, I know that yours is breaking.

So please my friend,
Just take a look – through the vision that I’m seeing…
And when you see that you’re not alone
That in itself – can be freeing.

Remove your mask,
remove your veil,
and let out your inner feelings.

You are never alone throughout this journey,
called ‘The road to inner healing.’
