My love for science first began,
I learned about our many cells,
And their identity.
How cells divide mitotically,
How they have nuclei.
How nuclei have DNA,
How this is amplified.
It’s amplified through PCR,
A famous lab technique.
This brings me to my love for labs,
And all that science seeks.
The joy of lab work every week,
I simply can’t deny.
The peace of passaging your cells,
With microscopic eyes.
I’ve worked in cancer research fields,
For over three great years.
Manipulating cancer genes,
I’ve helped to wipe away the tears,
Of children with cancer.
I’ve researched ways to treat children,
Though there is more work to be done,
Hope is alive indeed.
My fervent love for cancer work,
Will push us to succeed.
