The Press

Submitted on Mar 8, 2016 by  MelPainter2014

The Press, supress, our stories of happiness.

They try to define us, as "Suffering Headliners".

No one writes when the virus has refined us,

Given us gratitude, a loving attitude.

The media just want to, undermine us.

They concentrate on the criminality,

The shock and shame of our sexuality.

We want to be valued for our femininity,

To find a true voice for our creativity.

To show we are all wonderful women,

Much more than our status.

Living our lives, strong and gracious.

We deserve to be reported with dignity,

Accepted as part of humanity.

Let us be respected, celebrated, honoured and appreciated,

As warriors, survivors, "Inspiring Headliners".

As HIV positive, and stigma free.
