Epiphany's Mantra

i thank You God for most this amazing day: for the leaping greenly spirits of trees and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything which is natural which is infinite which is yes

Medical Students

by Epiphany


They walk the hallways

smiles upon their faces

hiding the pain

lost is their graces


So tired and living on adrenaline

expected to give and give

with no time to sin


Bones in their boxes

meetings here, meetings there

caring for the unknown

lost in a world of

paradox


It's all for a good cause

those who don't

want to be here

but having a family 

tradition to bear


who is to save mankind

but the great and dear


The semester is almost over

no more mock practicals

no more gross labs

the years fly by slowly

soon an MD will make

it’s a must,

it can not come soon enough
