Forever Positive

This poem is part of a series written by women living with HIV and AIDS in Central Texas. This poem was originally recited at the Women’s Giving Circle Luncheon on May 6, 2015.

Forever Positive

Forever positive is the way I will be
A choice not mine but accepting as Thee
Down the road it became clear to see
The difficulty of living with HIV

I accept that I will never be free
To live my life with HIV
Forever positive is the way I will be
Regardless of my disease, I have to be me

Accept me for the person you see
Not the label society pushed on me
The woman with the power of three
Living her life forever with HIV

Being positive is a choice for me
One I had before my fate with HIV
God’s love continues to guide me
Forever positive is the way I will be
