A broken soul an body in strife. Brooding days an toying a knife a nice way to sum up the theme of the poem.. liked it.
It is a dog's life. Once you get into it, you are finished.
Dear Doc Saadat, They are not just physically ill, but also they are emotionally in pain..So sad.. This truly happens....a very touching write.. Thank you for sharing the story of the poem with us. Sincerely, diane
a very sad poem of an illness that is for life? .............well written.
Although the rhythm almost seems playful, the meaning is profound and sad. A nicely written poem, easy to read and yet touching.
very well written verse
thx for this truly absorbing poem. It's sad, but still - theres always someone who can see when another is suffering (be it physically or psychologically) ... which gives me hope.
... beautifully expressed... loved the way you wrote it and also the way you used the simili..
A very moving and sad poem.. abandoned and rejected...unfortunately, as so many people are, who are facing disease, sickness and poverty.. very well written..Thank you for sharing...
The story of a man in plight, drenched in empathy and compassion is well described. ''Good doctors feel their patients' pain, literally'' says a recent research.
Saadat... I was deeply touched on a personal level by your poem as I come nearer to the end of this life... ~ Shirley
'Who’ll pick up his dejected life? Who’s got the time for this rife? A broken soul an body in strife. Brooding days an toying a knife.' An excellent poem that touches inside.10+++
very touching write. you have full control over your subject and vocabulary, which translates into vivid images and builds up the climax. this is untouchability in new garb. How it feels to be rejected and dejected, much harder to deal with than the actual disease and pain. ignorance and superstitions lead to a lot of cruelty.emotional pain hurts like a raw wound without scab.

Thankfully HIV need not cut life as short as before with all the new drugs available and people should be educated not to discriminate and be so scared of folk that contract it. A welcome portrayal of people's fears as it needs to be brought out into the open and discussed. Well done. Ruthy
Who’ll pick up his dejected life? Who’s got the time for this rife? A broken soul an body in strife. Brooding days an toying a knife...... sometimes we prove prone to diseases.. but who has the time........ good write dear
