A Poem by veganplease
I have been living with HIV since 1988. I wrote this poem almost 10 years ago (11/17/2000). I am a 43-year-old female who is an ethical vegan; practices a lot of yoga and qigong, and prays for peace and happiness for all sentient beings.
This Disease is really a Blessing in disguise.
A Gift bestowed upon me
Fortunately, the seemingly unwelcome,
Steadily Opening, finally, is my cold, wounded Heart
Finished are years of Frantically rushing
Skillfully was I Awakened
I Fear No More the Limits of my Time here,
I Follow the Path
Immortal are We,
