the AIDS song

 AIDS POV: 

Right now it’s only cough and cold
But you won’t survive until you’re old
Your friends and family will stay away
No matter how much you plead or pray

You’ll lose your weight and faint at times
You’ll prefer dying than being alive
No one to take care of you at night
You’ll be untouchable, yeah that’s right

It doesn’t matter how I infected you
All they’ll think all you do is screw
Your life will be like a living hell
You’ll be alone and lonely, can’t you tell?

You’ll regret that day I entered you
The days you have are very few
Within no time you’ll beg to die
But I’ll kill you slowly while you cry


 PATIENT’S POV: 

Right now it’s only cough and cold
But I am gonna get you trolled
My friends and family will stay with me
They love me so much, can’t you see?

Skinnier I’ll be, unhealthy I’ll be
It’s not ‘you’ and ‘I’, with us it’s a ‘we’
They’ll stand by me, take care of me
They’ll take me home, I’ll be free

But today they asked me the reason
Was it some blood transfusion?
Yes it was, I wanted to say
But I realized my life had started to sway

They’re going away, the ones I loved
Was it really necessary for me to be shoved?
I trusted them to stay with me
But now I’m begging you to let me die…

    So sad Apoorva. I have always stood by my friend with HIV; she's my girl after all. That didn't change because she contracted HIV. Don't know how she got it and don't care. What I do know is she became my friend because she was a wonderful person and THAT didn't change. ;)

    Very touching poem apoorva, and on such a sad subject, well written for AIDS awareness

    oh my, what a sad one . I have heard that AIDS patients are living a really long time now, but of course, it's the ones who have health insurance or are getting free aid in countries that have health care for them. A great topic that you addressed, dear.

    So emotional and true words from both sides. There is a song called "I think his name was John" by Reba McEntire and this poem reminded me of it. Amazing write! And thank-you for your kind words on my poetry..:)~Tammy~
