Dear Intern Me

Amna Shabbir, MD, shares a poem in which she reflects back and talks to her intern self. Written in the spirit of July 1st's med student to intern transition.

June 20, 2023

Dear Intern Me,
I wish that you could see.
All that you have now become,
All that you had to and did overcome.
The storms you did endure,
Some souls you healed amidst your arduous tour.
You fell down and got back up every single day,
You kept battling all your doubts and fears along the way.
If not nothing, Dear Intern Me, you were persistent,
If not nothing, Dear Intern Me, you were consistent.
And somewhere between the shreds of tenacity and grit,
You forged your future with hard work and wit.

Oh but Dear Intern Me- I wish to thyself you had been a bit more kind,
 I wish you had allowed yourself to sometimes unwind.
Yes, medical training is truly a grind,
But moments of self-compassion would not have left you in the behind.
With self-kindness, your spirit could soar high,
Embracing love within, you’d touch the sky.
Oh New Interns, let go of self-doubt’s weight,
Embrace your journey with a heart elate.
For success lies not in fate alone,
But in the passion and purpose you’ve shown.
As a young doctor, your path is bright,
With compassion as your guiding light.
