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.

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.
