6 YEAR MEDICAL SCHOOL PROGRAMME - THE FIRST DAY.
They stand in line, eyes upon each other
Eager for the course that would change them forever
Some are there out of a childhood dream
Some are there just to fulfil a parent's whim.
Some are there cos they always made good grades
Others cos nothing else made good sense
Unfortunately, this number would decrease
Sadly, some of these lofty dreams would cease.
Not out of disaster or unfortunate circumstance
But the simple effects of time and chance
It would decrease, cos along the way
The realities of life would begin to hold sway.
It would decrease when some volunteer to opt out
After considering what the journey is all about
It would decrease when some fail courses
Having realised life is not a bed of roses.
Of the few that get to the finish line
They realise, all too late its just the starting line
They are forced to make that decision they should have made 7 years ago -
Should I stay, or should I go?
