The white coat is a symbol that we all know well,
It indicates cleanliness, as well as good health.
When patients see doctors in lab coats they know,
they recognize your skills, and their trust in you grows.
You worked hard for years to get where you are,
During which you observed the lab coat from afar.
You came to wish the coat was something you possessed,
as you quickly realized it’s reserved for the best.
The white coat means pride, prestige, and respect,
It’s such a simple garment, yet what it reflects
is that you’re a true healer, patients lives you’ll protect.
