The Pandemic

It is unforgettable, unpredictable, unappreciated,
That is why we're not so up to its roots.
HIV/AIDS destroys and plans ahead to get ahead
In places where it will gain comfort and joy.

It shows no restrictions but creates only the complications
The elder, the younger
Both go beyond pain, piercing and poking for eternity
Because AIDS is like a slow poison,
It hinders very slowly, quietly and proudly.

Day in and out graveyards are overcrowded
And AIDS mostly accommodates the youngsters
Leaving parents perturbed,
Them having hard time to entomb,
Tears feeling the buckets.

To my beloved ones,
Make sure you are on a learning curve that takes you
Upwards and to greater strength,
Because being motivational and inspirational like this
helps you see what is going on under the surface of things.

A nice poem rising a message of self-awareness about HIV/ AIDS. It is indeed spreading very rapidly and many and many human populations are in danger of getting overwhelmed by this life threatening disease in the upcoming decades............10/10 Best WIshes Sameer
