HOPELESS (Aids Awareness)

SHE CARRIED HER AIDS LIKE AN AMERICAN EXPRESS CARD.

NEVER LEAVE HOME WITHOUT IT

SHE WALKS IN THE MEMORY OF HER MISTAKES.

EACH STEP, THROUGH THE STREETS SHE ONCE RAKED!

FOR CIGARETTE BUTTS, WHILE SHE WAS HIGH,

SO HIGH OFF HER FACE

SHE WALKS WITH A CHILD, WHO IS SCARED AND DISGRACED!

SHE IS TORN, BUT ADDICTION TAKES PRIDE IN ITS PLACE!

 SHE IS STUCK IN A TIME

WHEN ADDICTION DIDN’T EXIST

SHE IS STUCK IN A TIME BEFORE THAT NEEDLE BECAME A NECCESSARY HIT! 

SHE WAS BEAUTIFUL AND IT WAS FUN.

THEY WOULD LAUGH AND DANCE ALL NIGHT….

NEVER MAKE IT HOME BEFORE THE MORNING SUN!

BUT THOSE DAYS ARE OVER.

THIS SHE SURELY KNOWS.

BECAUSE THE HIGH ISN’T EVEN HOW IT WAS ONCE BEFORE!

 NOT EVEN A BABY COULD STOP IT.

FILLING HER VEINS WITH POISON HAS BECOME A DAILY DEPOSIT.

NEVER MIND IF THE BABY’S RETARDED.

THOUGH, EVENTUALLY THE CHILD PROVIDES SOME KIND OF LOGIC.

 ON TO RECONCILE WITH HERSELF, SHE ATTEMPTS TO CLEAN UP.

THE METHODONE PROVIDED IS NOT NEARLY ENOUGH!

THE ROAD TO RECOVERY IS HARDER THAN SHE THOUGHT.

AND SO THE PROCESS GOES, FALL DOWN AND GET BACK UP!

THROUGH THE YEARS SHE HAS BATTLED WITH HER HABIT.

TURNING COKE AND DOPE ADDICT INTO ALCOHOLIC!

SHE FIGURES SHE CAN DO BETTER,

BUT IT’S A STEP DOWN, FROM THE SEVERITY OF NARCOTIC! 

YET STILL, THE NEEDS AND THE CRAVES

HAVE TURNED HER SLIGHTLY PSYCHOTIC

 UNTIL ONE DAY, THE LIFE SHE KNOWS IS DEMOLISHED!

BLOOD TEST READS…YOU ARE HIV POSITIVE!

AND YOU WILL HAVE TO LIVE WITH THE KNOWLEDGE,

THAT THE REST OF YOUR DAYS WILL BE COUNTED.

LIFE DOES THAT SOMETIMES…..YOU REDEEM ONLY TO BE LEFT HOPELESS!

 YOU DIE AND OTHERS DIE WITH YOU, BE CAREFUL!
