The Truth of Medicine






We ask for more, it never fills.
We ask for less, it never ends.
We ask because we can, but unheard.

Yet our actions make it all.
The world might not be better,
But hope we plant and nurture.
Which then just leads to
Sweet fruits, so many and ripe.

Sold is not just time, but money,
routine, brain and all.

Inspired by Life, we say.
Inspired life itself, we do.

This poem is dedicated to all Manipal Graduates – past, present and future.
