Out there we started a long chit-chat 

She stood nearby us and glanced at

With confusion on her face and hopes in her eyes

She approached us with fear in her voice

Handling a paper she stood beside

To know what was mentioned inside

I casually read it with a normal sigh

But for her to handle this was pretty high

A clinical prescription with a few tests

Without which she would never again be the best

Trying to decipher the blood-red rashes on her skin

Though I could barely diagnose anything

Her prognosis was good but with medicines only

Sadly for her own treatment she had no penny

Standing there helpless with white coat

I could only see saliva swallowing down her throat

I realized over small things the way we cry

When these people have lived their life so dry

And once again to us she taught

That to grumble and depress Life is too short!

  1. It takes only a moment to realize the ‘for granted’ attitude we carry around, most of the times, towards life. We are the victims, we suppose, only to realize we were never even in the vicinity of being one.

    Liked it, Natasha. 🙂

  2. A word of advice from someone who really knows. Medicine falls short too many times. I am an RN, no longer working and I no longer have much faith in the system. I’ve learned we must take responsibility for ourselves and heal ourselves. Example …. my husband had a horrible rash on his legs. I’m talking oozing and a mess. No doctor, no prescribed cream cleared it up. We began eliminating foods from his diet. The rash began to heal. Months and months of eliminating foods that he was reacting to and then, he began to use my soap bars I make. Today he is rash free. No doctor or specialist even knew what that rash was. Have your eyes wide open and know when to use medicine and when to use your own resources. As a friend used to say to me …. don’t throw out the baby with the bathwater. 😉

    1. I just realized so many things the moment you shared your experience with me.
      This happens many a times and it is important to be wiser enough to where to do what. I’m happy that things worked for you, not sooner but later.
      Thank you so much for sharing 😊
      Glad to connect with you! Looking forward to hear more from you☺
