there is a lot of stigma towards people living with HIV positive.the treatment they receive from society is at atimes appalling.it is possible to live positively with HIV


Positive

positive...
the status of my H.I.V
negative...
your attitude towards me
nonchalant...
is how I choose to be
pretenders...
you allegedly sympathise with me
true colours...
you show them when I turn my back
pity...
I surely do not need it right now
life...
I am full of it and I am living
understanding...
I have a condition like anyone else
positive...
the status of my attitude
determination...
is filled inside of me
oh yes..
I have the will to live
I am positive...
in every aspect
of the word!

Good point made with this poem! I dunno why people are that way. I do like the style of drawing out the opposites of positive and negative. Well done!
