Not because we are beholden to a philosophy
Or consistent with a guideline-
For these are only signposts along the way.
Indeed we follow the evidence
Not for its own sake
But because it points us to a greater reality:
The effective, compassionate alleviation of bodily affliction.
Our work as chiropractors matters
Because it is a means by which we add our vote to human flourishing.
It is our contribution
And our guiding star,
The torch we bear
For the paths of others.
