Graduation- Vitamin C

And so we talked all night about the rest of our lives
Where we're gonna be when we turn 25
I keep thinking times will never change
Keep on thinking things will always be the same
But when we leave this year we won't be coming back
No more hanging out cause we're on a different track
And if you got something that you need to say
You better say it right now cause you don't have another day
Cause we're moving on and we can't slow down
These memories are playing like a film without sound
And I keep thinking of that night in June
I didn't know much of love
But it came too soon
And there was me and you
And then we got real blue
Stay at home talking on the telephone
We would get so excited and we'd get so scared
Laughing at ourselves thinking life's not fair
And this is how it feels

[1] - As we go on
We remember
All the times we
Had together
And as our lives change
Come Whatever
We will still be
Friends Forever

So if we get the big jobs
And we make the big money
When we look back no…

So, I carried my stethoscope and Palm, borrowed a dot-pen and walked out of the hostel thinking what might be the condition.

She was an old lady, widow in white dress, shaking and beating her chest. The first thing that came to my mind was, 'Can I save her?' 2 women who had brought her to the hospital carried her to the rusty examination bed. She was really in 'dis-ease' was all I could make out. She wasn't responding to my questions but was very anxious. All she was saying was 'my heart is beating really hard.' I held her hand, checked her pulse and blood pressure, listened to what her heart and lungs were 'saying'. Everything seemed 'WNL'(within…
