Off the Shelf, Poetry Thursdays
Leave a comment


Patient and you, together.

Care goes beyond mere diagnostic labels.

This practice revolves around holistic introspection.








Often times,


Allowing vibratory transconfiguration to electrical circuits, proves worthwhile.

Listening equals hearing.

Hearing equals understanding.

To be seen,                                                                                                                                                                           as you are,

For who you are,

Absent judgment,

Equals patient care.

Poetry Thursdays is an initiative that highlights poems by medical students. If you are interested in contributing or would like to learn more, please contact our editors.
