Never retire..

If there is a professional dream to which I aspire

It would be the ability to never retire

Perhaps slow down and not be a slave

To corporate culture, but still brave

Challenges new as a physician each day

Continue to impact lives in a meaningful way

I just hope my body and mind co-operate

And with new technology I can stay up-to-date

Work does get easier with experience

Each year of practice enhances confidence

Why would I reject the enticement

Of progressively increasing contentment

As my knowledge and skills keep climbing higher

Why would I try to douse that inner fire

That makes me eager to face challenges new

That keeps me stimulated and motivated too


I fear that certain circumstances would force me

To retire against my will, early

I must stay healthy enough to work, I understand

But it is corporate greed that I might not be able to withstand

I hope I am not disillusioned by the state of healthcare

That seems to be sinking fast in a well of despair

I hope the inherent nature of my profession is enough

To keep me going strong through turbulences rough
