Where Are People That I’ve Known? - Poem by Edgar John Jackson

There are many people
Around me
But I am so alone
There are many people
That I’ve known
But they don’t know me.

I am walking
In the streets
I am talking
To many people
But I am so alone
Where are people
That I’ve known?

I begin to ask
Nobody t wanna answer
I am inside of this cask
And I lost my trust
Where is my answer?
My heart begins to rust
And wear a gold mask.

Where are
People around me?
But they are so far
Like a distance star
Where are people
That I’ve known?
They aren’t by my side
They begin to hide…

    don't ever give up. i know how you feel to be infected with aids and it's a constant reminder every day of what happened to me. every morning you wake up wondering if this'll be your last day. but don't give in to it. you'll only die sooner if you do. be strong. peace. (Report)Reply
