Trauma Surgeon

It's a man's world, 

They say with a cocked eyebrow and a daring smirk of superiority.

I've heard that one before. Faced that fight.

It's nothing I'm afraid of.  

A challenge I face every day, with dignity and authority of an empowered woman

A woman who can save a life just as well as any man

That's all it amounts to. 

If I can save someone's life. 

That would certainly change my own

Achieving my dream of being a surgeon

One step at a time

School by school

Hour by hour

I see the light in people's faces by a surgeon saying

"They're okay"

I want to bring people that light

I want saving someone else's life to change my life.
