December 1 is World AIDS Day. It's here to remind us of the presence of HIV/AIDS and its effect on EVERYBODY. There may not be a cure yet but there is something YOU can do. People with HIV/AIDS need our love, support, and understanding not hate and scorn. Their status does not define them. "There may be times when there is a need to draw the sword but at least know to whom you use it for." Stigma stops with ME
In the past month, I've found silence in the noise, been bestfriends with lonely, and enemies with hope. Been living stepping on eggshells, knowing the law of cause and effect. In every action, an opposite reaction. Every movement calculated, as if life is an equation to be manipulated. I feel like I've been scooping water out of a deep well with a perforated tub. Greedily getting as much as I can, only for it to seep through the holes and leave me empty handed.
