My Letter to HIV: A Letter and Video From Christopher J. Morris

April 7, 2012

Dear HIV,

I got you as of January 9th, 2007 exactly at 9:03am. I was numb for an entire year. You caught me off guard only because I thought I was doing everything right. I used condoms. I didn't hoe around. I even could still count on one hand how many people I had slept with. Never thought that rap would be why I would soon meet you or be able to say that I'm over you. Our relationship started rough because I dealt with you so harshly. I tried to keep up a good front though no one really seemed to understand.

I would soon get that you don't like stress. It makes you peak your ugly head. Though it has been five years now, I see that you are still here. Though you are undetected you still, at times let me know you are here. Because of you I am a bit afraid of love or even to be loved. Because of you I at times still feel hopeless but my grind requires me to keep going.
