Teary Star Stained Eyes
      #71203 - 09/07/03 08:20 AM

I have a fatal illness, for which there is no cure,
I asked my doctor to check again, but he assured me he was

He drew my blood anyway, and much to my surprise,
The test results remained the same, and I had Teary Star-
Stained Eyes.

He gave me many medicines and he said to take them everyday,
He said to never ever miss a dose, that the virus never
goes away.

CD-4's and viral loads and mutant virus strands,
Medicines and side affects, most no one understands.

Loss of weight and bed stricken, with two Teary Star-
Stained Eyes,
A friend of mine just breathed his last, another AIDS
patient dies.

33 million on the books without a cure in sight,
These statistics are very real, they've reached a whole new

So I have a message for you, and I hope you'll understand,
Being responsible for yourself and others is just the
beginning of being a man.

For the virus shows no mercy, it doesn't judge and does not
Protect yourself when having sex if sex is what you dare.

And to all the men, and women too, both young and old alike,
Abstinence is the safest way, until you find Ms. or Mr.

So I hope you'll head my warning and when having sex be
very wise,
Don't end up like me and the other, 66 million Teary Star-
Stained Eyes.
