Why you started this path seems distant
The fear of dark thoughts and masked stigma persistent
Pause to Remember
Doctor the Doctor
Bare vulnerability to those held near
Remarkable honesty shall be revered
Together
We heal
We confide
No more do we hide
No longer alone by the power of peers
Burnout prevention and treatment are cheered
We move forward
Supported, open and sincere
