Can a dream become a reality?

 

Fast pace
heart pounding
Someone's life in your hands
adrenline souring through your veins
 
mind and body being pushed to their limits
almost a decade of school after the initial twelve
leading up to scrubs on your body and scalpal in hand
nerves crowd your mind but preparation scares them off
then the first cut that you have waited a lifetime for
look up, your attending gives you a reassuring smile
you can hear your heart bum ba dum bum ba
in a blink of the eye hours have passed
the patient is on the table, cured
you have succeeded
the dream is
reality.
