I bought my first pair of scrubs today.

These smooth

navy blue pjs

with white polka dots on the inside.


I spent 45 minutes in that store today,

a store bubbling over

with any color and a variety

of pocket locations.

My fitting room littered with blues,

greys, and blacks in any size they had.


Finally finding the right length

and the most flattering color,

the mirror reflected a person

I have not known myself to be,

but one I am excited to meet.


The racks towered over me

and price tags laughed in my face


I walked out of that store today

ready for my first day in healthcare.
