life after AIDS
« on: March 10, 2018, 12:41:37 am »
I had AIDS and witnessed the world change

feeling a bit emotional about so much loss

I know I should not think such things but woke up and felt like sharing a thought or two

what ifs and could have been the road to unhealthy thought

I should be grateful just to be alive

sometimes in life stuff happens like becoming HIV positive

so many missed opportunities in my own life do to  AIDS devastating our society

when I was younger I was not all that bad looking and could have gone places if there were places to go left absent creating an  empty void left from AIDS taking away so many gifted people in the arts and entertainment. so many stories left untold and so many dreams snuffed out along with the dreamers 

IN my own life making choices based on short term life expectancy I did not make many long term plans that I could have planted nurtured and had  chance to bare fruit I mostly now blame myself for not rising to the challenge. Making the most of what could be by dewing more

Not that  I was or am now gifted socially or have a great talent of any kind

It is midnight here  and wanted to ponder and share some thoughts

My life has some good stuff in it now life like many things could always be better in some way or another just pondering where I might have gone instead of spending or wasting so much time trying to understand and get a better grip on how to rather than doing I guess

please pardon my drifty late night banter

thank you for having  this place to write too

well at least I have the chance to write about it

again many thanks and all my best
