A Physician's Plea

a physician's plea

i am a physician
which means i'm first human
though the world wants to keep me
detached and removed
up in some pedestal
far from the real you

i don't belong there
i belong with you
next to you
i'm a human person
i am like you

it is in my humanity
that i can best
see you
hear you
serve you

i am a human being
just like you
and my heart longs
to know you
and connect with you
with compassion
generosity
and, yes, with love

let me
fall
back 
down
to where i belong

i am 
human
which is
what you need
not
one 
more
machine

let me be human
and walk alongside you
believe me, i care,
and healing dwells there
in the house of 'we'

we heal
together
living more fully
together
we are human
i am human
a human, MD

Blessings & Joy,
Dr Mari
