Medical school – Is this what I really want?

medical students

They stand in line, eyes upon each other

Eager for the course that will change them forever

Some are there out of a childhood dream

Some are thereĀ  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 will decrease

Sadly, some of these lofty dreams will cease.

Not out of disaster or unfortunate circumstance

But the simple effects of time and chance

Because along the way

The realities of life will begin to hold sway.

It will decrease when some volunteer to opt out

After considering what the journey is all about

It will 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 it is just the starting line

They are forced to make that decision they should have made 6 years ago

Should I stay, or should I go?
