I bought my first pair of scrubs today.
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.
