I am a Child of...


I can feel the disease crawling through my skin
I can feel my body getting weaker within
A shadow stands upon my eye
I am always tied and I don't know why
My body is frail as a feeble woman
Lord can you help me fight off this evil demon
I prey because it wont be long
Before the gates of heaven open and the angles sing a joyful song
I am to young to die, but someday I will go
Just not right now because there is something you need to know:

I am a child of God, but I never took the time to prey
I am a child of God, but never visit a church on a Sunday
I am a child of God, but I question God ability
I am a child of God, but dying from HIV.............................................. ...........

This poem is written for all the people dying from HIV. I am not a victim, but who say you can't. Life is to important so do me and the rest of the world a favor and get tested for HIV.
