What I Long To Do - Poem by Kathryn Eddy

Everyone has a dream they wish to come true,
And I'm sure there's nothing they wouldn't do,
Whether to gain money or to become a superstar,
Whatever the case it doesn't matter how far.

For if their desire is truly that strong,
For that goal they will continue on and on,
This fact is something that none can refute
Even if the reasoning they can not possibly compute.

And so such is the case for me,
And so I will tell you all this honestly,
Though I don't have much to offer anyone,
That does not mean I am going to run.

I want to make differences if I can,
So much more than anyone could try to comprend,
I want to try even if I fail,
Right now there isn't a path I wouldn't scale.

But what's the desire I wish to fulfill?
What was in my mind that did instill?
To save lives in a way open to me
A live organ donor is what I'll be.
