Poetry: You Haven’t Changed At All

For Avid, a kind soul who is needed in medicine as he is in my life.

Sometimes it doesn’t matter if your hair is neat

Or you have RM Williams shoes

Sometimes it doesn’t matter if you’ve studied

Or if there’s a thousand anki cards waiting

Sometimes what matters is that

You have a kind heart and an open ear

When I talk to you

Whether it’s walking out of an exam or

Drinking dark and stormies with ladies fair

When I talk to you

I know you are avid in your love for people

I know you are worried about your spirit

But you haven’t changed at all

You’re still better than the rest of us

Sometimes it doesn’t matter if you are popular

Or you have the faculty on your side

Sometimes what matters is that

You saved someone’s life

You’ve saved him even if he doesn’t know it

You’re saving mine currently

I appreciate you so much, thank you.
