Aids/HIV: Will I Live?

AIDS-will you let me live?
You will live,
if you remain faithful to
your spouse,
you will live ,
if you avoid sexually
depraved activities,
you will live,
if you leave morally
permissive life,
hedonist world,
media, and society

You will live,
if you watch your
medical therapy and
choice of care,
you will live,
by not sharing unsterilized
medical equipment.

You will live,
if you abstain from
street drugs,
you will live by
observing all safety standards
for medical personnel,
at high risk of contracting HIV/AIDS.

Remember, thirty-seven million souls
worldwide are living with HIV/AIDS,
thousands are infected daily,
AIDS is real,
AIDS has no pity on victims
once it visits,
AIDS has no forgiven spirit,
AIDS destroys,
AIDS kills.

Even, if cures come today,
AIDS is your enemy,
Run away from AIDS
for AIDS to run away
from YOU.
