Hero’s Journey

On this long journey

between cadaver dissections and treating infections

between hand disinfections and anesthetic injections

may we pause for reflection, reconnect with our intention

may we cultivate connection, and to our loved ones, display affection

to our own needs, may we pay attention

may we vote in elections

and to injustice, voice objection

may we have predilection for self-correction,

not be afraid to change direction

may we not beat ourselves up for inevitable rejection

may we forgive ourselves our own imperfection

medicine is a practice, and we will never be perfect

but it is enough for us to be on this hero’s journey

Victory is every step
