THESE THREE WORDS
With these three words, I have AIDS, my life will never be the same.
Many of us go through our lives like playing charades,
Going through the motions playing like it's a game while some people seem to go insane.
Doing drugs, drinking, and other wild things to deaden the thoughts of all their pain.

Pacing yourself so you can rearrange your priorities for life are your most important care. There are many who are willing to join our battle.
Pain and comfort they are willing to share, while helping us to show our mettle.
In the end though, it is really up to us to show the world that we are worth the risk.
Everyone affected needs to make a fuss and hopefully our response will be very brisk.
