HIV/AIDS Poem Contest: Submission #5: "The Virus in your blood"



The Virus in your blood

Tears flow down a face once smiling
As the word comes forth
You are Positive.
Life as you know it has changed forever
Why?
A virus now inhabits your blood.

Does life now end in a sour note
Or begin with a new hope
A new vision now, for life will never be the same You prayed you would not hear the words But alas now you must move on A virus now inhabits your blood.

Life is now clearly about survival
Learning how to live anew
Hard as it may seem at the time
Life has not ended – Just the old journey A new journey of peace and understanding A virus now inhabits your blood.

Now past the fear with a new understanding Life is more joyful, everyday a new blessing Helping others to understand You have not come to your lifes end.
Just in time a new journey has begun
A virus now inhabits your blood.

You see life now as a new beginning
To live to the fullest enjoying each day Now you take the time to smell the roses Colors are more vivid and dreams more real Now you live positive – HIV+ A virus now inhabits your blood.

Loving now more than ever
Living now with a new understanding
Life is what you make of it daily
Now let the world know
You may have HIV but HIV does not have you It’s only a virus that inhabits your blood.

Living your life Positive – HIV+
Circle of life is now beginning
As new friends come – Love grows
Peace to live – Fighting from within
Praying that one day soon there will be a cure To kill this virus that inhabits your blood.
