I sit here eating dinner,
contemplating tomorrow’s big test,
wondering if I’ll pass or fail.
I’ll plan to give it my best.
Three more hours to go
until “light’s out!” for mental rest,
then an early start tomorrow,
and a flight out toward the west.
Flash cards in transit, a prayer for God’s help,
and THEN it will be time!
Four hours of testing, if successfully passed,
and certification will be mine.
Lupus has challenged the efforts I’ve made,
but despite limits, I won’t be undone!
Yes, it’s been hard, and the effort severe,
but how else can true victory be won?
I am as ready as I will ever be…
