As a long term survivor of HIV-(27yrs), I imagined the HIV virus talking from it's point of view. I love rhyming so
my poem does provide that. My piece has somewhat of a positive message about living well too.

My name is HIV in your body I now reside,

here to do some damage, then find a place to hide.

I have a one track mind, to fight until the end,

I am changing all the time, to fit in & to blend.

I do see all the traps, all the drugs out to get me,

they really think they won, when they made AZT.

I am an unwanted guest of yours let in by your own hand,

so what's next you say, I say an infection would be grand.

Hiding is what I'm good at you really have to look,

getting rid of me you won't find in any medical book.

It's a job like any other that I love & have to do.

so don't take your pills anymore, see what I will do.

But if you're up for a challenge & in for the fight,

you really have to take your pills, exercise, eat right. 

I really shouldn't say this, but, you can keep me away, 

abstinence is key for sure, and protection just O.K.

For those of you who know me, a suggestion if I may,

listen to your Doctor  & don't skip your dose today.

For those who don't know me, that's O.K. I'm around,

so you see I will infect until a real cure is found.
