Aids Caught Me By Surprise - Poem by Peter Daniel Phiri

Your pain hides somewhere in my heart,
How can I pull you up,
when I'm falling down?
I'm poised to lose this fight,
But I shall win this war.

My streangth and focus was dedicated to fighting poverty,
But from my blind side,
Aids caught me by surprise and declared war.

Away goes my virginity to Aids.
Defeated and infected I now live.
Another victory yet again for HIV,
I infected her without knowing,
And now my heart rages like a violent storm from deep within.

But my weapon shall conquer,
My message is stronger.
I may die on my knees,
But on my feet,
I will give them the keys.

Open your eyes and see,
We joined hands like the sea.
Safe sex and abstinence will set us free.
