I have done it. I have completed my laboratory requirements on Operative Dentistry.
I should have done it a long time ago, but it took so much time.
It is not you; it is not me.
It is the folly of things that don’t rhyme.
It will not be any easier, especially for someone like me.
Tomorrow will not always be kind.
I cannot promise that I will be free;
from the prison of my fear misaligned.
There is always the beauty of the human body,
With its neurons connected by more chemical synapses.
That with practice we will be, you and me.
And that my hands will remember you despite my lapses.
