Clayton is one of the medical students currently on a trip with Dr. Coral Matus
In the land of verdant green and sun,
In rolling hills and views that stun,
I came to help, or so was the goal
With my meager knowledge, mi poquito español.
Instead, it is I who benefits the most.
I learn from patients, I listen engrossed.
I see compassion and skill and drive
After which to emulate I ardently strive
In Dr Matus and all the staff here.
This, I think, this is what I want in a career.
This is a place where people are loved well,
Where needs are met, where empowerment excels.
It really ought not be surprising
That here esperanza is rising.
