Untitled Poem

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.

I am a woman of skill
I have the heart of steel
Free heartedly the will
to live.

I choose to love + give
freely to all whom I
have the blessing to meet

I love all to whom
I meet to learn to
love unconditionally

God has blessed me to
love through many trials
+ shortcomings. I laugh, I cry
but through it all I love.
