Scenes of A Medical Student

Endless alarms, coffee to-go, Adidas tennis shoes toe to toe.
Password guesses, ID scans, room by room – endless lands.
The hustle, the hops, the presentations, the drops.
Hospital medicine – a grind that never stops.
Breath by breath and tear by tear – humanity is a united sphere.
We run, we hide, we advance, we stride.
For family, for science, in medicine we take pride.
