It’s been years. I waited and waited.
I toiled. I struggled. And I waited,
I tried, I cried. And I waited.
I fell, I bled. And I waited.
I plunged, I jumped; risked things. And I waited.
I smiled, I laughed. And I waited.
Gave up, gave in, get up again. And I waited.
I waited for today;
The last day of medical school.
Alhamdulillah. All praise belong to Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
Thank You for the things I have learned,
for the stuff I have experienced,
all of them are good, quite perfect,
now that I am looking in retrospect.
What else can I say.
I had waited for 5 long grueling years for the arrival of this day.
And I found out finally, that today is just like any other day.
There will be new challenges and new struggles.
Tougher hurdles, double troubles.
Never stop, steady, constant, continuous.
For the next second, the next minute,
For the next heartbeat.
Until the breeze of my final breath escape my lips.
