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’m waken by a light so shining
that I stretch my arms and body
and think of what I must do next
Is this the time where I supposed to
be quiet or loud with emotions
then I start standing up and
moving forward to what I don’t
know but I’m drawing up to see
what comes next in my being!
Who am I!
