My Brother

Written by

My Brother

by Shannon Carpani

In memory of my brother, Nolan Roberts, 12-22-83 to 05-30-19 who lost his nine-year battle with Hodgkin's lymphoma.

When I think of my brother,

I think leader and guide.

One welcoming of whomever

to walk alongside.

Why We Need Rest

Written by

Why We Need Rest

By Shannon Carpani RN.


The day after a stretch of shifts,

I step out of my bed…

There isn’t much that doesn’t hurt;

My feet, my back, my head….

Emotional Awareness

Emotionally Aware

By Shannon Carpani RN


I walked into work

To find a nurse crying in the hall.

She was stretched too thin

And her patient had a fall.

Working the Holiday

By Shannon Carpani, BSN RN


There was a time

When working a holiday

Was something to dread

And hardly worth the extra pay.

There you are

The person whom

I care so deeply for.

Gather the courage

To walk up to your door.

My Hard to Tell Story

Written by

My Hard to Tell Story

By Shannon Carpani BSN, RN


I’ve tried to tell a story

I have tried to pen a thought

About things that are hard to say,

But in my head are caught.


The reason that I went to nursing school,

The year that I got in,

Wasn’t because it was long planned out;

I had decided to never apply again.

Someone’s Mama

By Shannon Carpani RN


I understand that it’s busy

I understand that things become missed

But have we come to a place

Where things never make the list?

The Fears Deep Within

Written by

The Fears Deep Within

By Shannon Carpani


I look and Ponder deep within me.

Who am I, what motivates me?

Am I as secure and as strong as I think,

Or am I feeble as a ship beginning to sink?

Nursing School

Written by

Nursing School

By Shannon Carpani

I set out on a journey that was my life’s dream.

I didn’t know how to handle it and thought I would scream.

I found good friends that helped me find my footings,

Yet was forced to leave them behind in Brookings.

I was thrown into a mess of drama and strife

Trying to overcome my fears and remain a good wife.
