I Tried to Change a Patient

Ben Harstine, M3, Class of 2021

I tried to change a patient,

instead they changed me.

I crashed into a brick wall, you see.

I poked.

I prodded.

I begged.

I implored.

She sat.

He stared.

He glared.

She stood.

They walked.

Nothing worked.

When I try to change another,

the realities were seen.

I needed my own boundaries, they changed me.
