'No mother, no father!'

Tears streaming down my face

why would they care about me,

when I care about others.

'Unhygeine is the reason,

but I will fix it, fix it all'.

As I began my study,

another thing was beginning,

the war was breaking,

and so were our men.

I rushed to the battlefield

to aid the sick...

but now I am sick,

this could be the end,

but at least I know that I have helped.
