Many a day I wondered about my plans for the future.
I was unaware that one day my attending would teach me how to suture.
My friends thought the stage would be my claim to fame.
Little did they know one day I would write doctor in front of my name.
I must admit I was excited yet fearful of such a prestigious call.
But then I remembered Jeremiah’s teaching and decided to stand tall.
I knew this call would entail obstacles not yet known to me.
The first year I aborted the mission and almost decided to flee.
I began to lose all my fire.
I soon became flat as a tire.
Then a wise woman told me life is full of bumps.
She repeatedly said, “Son never give up”.
I became anxious and could not remain still.
I then returned to do his will.
I realized my fear and doubt was a false alarm.
Finally, I stood alongside my peers and took an oath to do no harm.
