A fun filled childhood
that consists of giggles, hugs and cartoons
A happy kid with no worries,
what a wonderful time it has been.
My family is joyful which makes this time most relishing
My friends are rambunctious but what kid isn’t?
I go to the doctor for what seems like a million times
but so many wrongs are now right.
It made me realize my career aspiration,
for it is a path I must follow
to help vulnerable children and to lessen the pain,
a pediatrician I will be.
The pressures of friendships,
learning to navigate school, puberty, self-consciousness
Being a perfectionist, failing is my fear
Every swim meet, piano recital, school function is met with butterflies
Anxiety is a thief, but passion returns what was stolen.
Life gets complicated,
it now consists of responsibilities, duties, worries and self-awareness.
It is a life worth living and the burdens are triggers of growth.
Embrace the journey, live to the fullest,
be a dream chaser!
