Question often asked.
I am HIV positive,
I could hear some people saying;
I have a heart disease,
I am suffering from cancer of the pancreas "
I am suffering from a disease which,
Medically has not yet been diagnosing. "
Suddenly, I saw this shadow echoing
Footsteps coming towards me.
And the closer, the quite .
Then - said;
I am diabetic,
Also suffering from a liver disease.
I am HIV positive.
My health has made me autistic,
According to my parents.
Instead, I feel my parents are autistic
That is what I told them. "
You know what,
I am happy.
Because whenever I`m assigned to work,
I will gently say;
I am autistic "
Just saying that,
I no longer labor in life. "
