Becoming a doctor has always been my dream
It’s a goal that has tested my limits and pushed me to the extreme
I grew up in an unhealthy home
A place where through the pantry for chocolate we would roam
But science always caught my attention
It became what I dreamed about and all I could mention
The more I learned the more I realized
That this life I pictured was idealized
If I wanted to be a doctor I must practice what I preach
I must have a healthy life if that is what I will teach
The weight loss journey has begun
Not to become “skinny”, but to be able to run
Run the mile and run towards my dreams
And let me tell you it’s not as easy as it seems
I’ve done it for myself and I want to help others
I went help them get healthy like I did with my mother and brothers
It’s an uphill battle and that road is steep
But I am ready to climb; I am ready to take that leap
