The 31st Year

2 02 2013

It first appeared and we’ve reached the 31st year

Across the world scientists are still busy

Researching preventions or possible cures

It’s not my problem, it won’t happen here.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It spread across the world since that fateful year,

The virus respects no race, class, age or sex.

The world is alerted and prevention is preached.

Maybe I do have something to fear.

HIV is still infecting even in the 31st year

Young, old, rich and poor are daily affected

Orphans created on a regular bases.

“What can I do?” I say, and shed a tear.     TN_CROWD

What have I done since that fateful year?

Have I ever held out a helping hand?

On the day of reckoning can I hold my head high?

When you call for help, will I hear?
