Poems Of A Friend 6/30/03

These 2 poems were written by a friend of mine who passed from HIV...he was a good man. Here they are for you.


To Resist
*************************
To resist causes pain
and pain is a great motivator.

To resist change causes pain
that is greater than familiar pain.

Looking for something different
but there is no difference!

Doing the same,
looking for a different outcome...insanity

Not willing to change.


Alive with HIV
***************************
To carry this burden is like death row.

But is it not true.
You can learn to live.
For life itself gives a great meaning.

So what are you telling yourself?
For you death is only a symptom;
a lack of understanding.

For you hold the key,
and the key is life itself.
For you will not pass until it is time.
