My Letter to HIV (Poem)
By Robert Breining
April 29, 2012
But listen to my words, because this is the truth.
When I first met you, Pedro was his name.
The second time I met you, was basketball tragic.
The third time was the movie Philadelphia that featured Tom Hanks
For my fourth introduction, I can't say the same.
But it wasn't until 2001 when we first stared into each other eyes.
Our 10yr relationship has forced me to reflect.
Its the Jacks, Mondos, Onginas and Jamars
So thank you HIV for giving me a purpose.
So Today I sit here and have nothing but respect.

The Positive Pitch
I describe myself as a "positive person with purpose." My goal is to help people living with HIV/AIDS discover similarities in each other ... and form friendships. I want to ease the shock of a diagnosis and remind people that our dreams are not infected. I am also an HIV/AIDS cyber-activist, radio show host, blogger and social network guru.
