I AM JUST LIKE YOU..(FOR WORLD AIDS DAY)

DECEMBER 1, 2014: WORLD AIDS DAY – IN SOLIDARITY – NO DISCRIMINATION PLEASE
Thoughts for us and our our brothers and sisters whom we deny the life that is rightfully theirs – in the name of silly and misplaced reasons – reasons that can never be reasoned for..

I am just like you
I won’t say you to tag me along
But I won’t let you
To name call, to tag me wrong

I am just like you don’t you see
We look the same, we sound alike
I may have even the better view
Don’t you know the road I take
Shares the homes we are from
Why then you change the course
Whenever we share the it
And we reciprocate the view

I am just like you, and like you
I have my own problems
The many problems that a life faces
And has to be taken on alone
Yes, I have the one that I would pray
You and anyone should never have
Yes, I may be left with fewer days
Than what you wish to have for you

But, that is for me to face
After all, who has been able
To defy the permanence of death
Yes, I may stay less to see
But that doesn’t mean
I can’t see more of the world
Than what you wish to see
Yes, I am just like you

Yes, I am HIV Positive
But, I have learnt to see
That as just another way of life
Living positively, staying dignified
Just like you aspire to become
There is much common to us
Taking on life, looking at it every day
As you do, yes, I am just like you

Yes, I have greater visible risks
Yes, life is more unpredictable now
But, I know my alternatives
That you also know
That you also can believe in
It’s just a matter of faith
In living and let live in harmony
Don’t you see I look just like you

I am not just about numbers
I was not born to add to statistics
I am not ill, it’s just a possibility
The certainty of which can be pushed
Yes, I am well, just like you feel
I, too have a past, just like you
And my today thinks a future as well
Where I see the road going ahead

I have had my faith questioned
And my chances reassessed
And they have shown the way
Where you can help me stay longer
After all, it’s the love that heals us first
After all, it’s the hate that kills us first
Can’t you feel, please don’t classify
I am still the same I used to be

I am just like you
I won’t say you to tag me along
But I won’t let you
To name call, to tag me wrong

Yes, I am HIV Positive..But I am just like you..
..And unlike you..I am POSITIVE
