I touched base with the psychologist

not one I know

just one who was around

asked if I could talk
for 15 minutes

indeed, he said
a difficult situation

you know that the person won't change

echo
won't change won't change

I believed this
for two days

then I remembered
why I am a doctor
my secret weapon
my healing talent

I always have faith in change

everyone
has choices

"I can't stop smoking."
says the man

"My father quit three years ago.
55 years of two packs a day,
unfiltered Camels."

"Camels!" says the man
"Those are bad!"

"You can quit too.
It might take more than one try."

Why would I go to work
to talk about hypertension
exercise, birth control
obesity, heart attacks

unless at my core

I believe each person has choices?

Sometimes the choices
are between miserable
and horrible

life and death

still
whether a person is 9 or 90

they are graced
by choice

Graced (?), a.

Endowed with grace; beautiful; full of graces; honorable.

Shak.
