CHILD, why would you want to practice medicine?

Late hours, night calls, research projects, administration deadlines

Don’t do medicine, look at my life

Do what makes you happy

Daughter, why are you stressing?

Don’t do this. There are easier ways to make a living

It’s not worth it, go ahead and live

Do what makes you happy

Doctor, don’t you know that there is a price for learning?

Nothing worth doing is done easily

The struggle cries there must be an easier way

Do what makes you happy

Dear Heart, you have chosen a difficult road and kept true

In anesthesiology we meet as equals

An old man with eyes that leak now and again

Glad and proud that you do what makes you happy
