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?

  1. Brilliant. I happened to be replying comments on my 'Question Everyone Should Ask Themselves' post when I read this, and it fit my mood perfectly.

    So melancholy, yet so true, especially the end.
