World AIDS Day 2020


As we end the year,
With a world health scare,
We should not forget,
What is still out there.
***
It is as important now,
As it was last year,
To remember why,
It’s the red ribbon we wear.
***
We have seen what can happen,
When a virus is allowed to run rampant,
This should be a lesson to us all,
Of the power of something so small.
***
So today I will wear my ribbon,
Not just for those with HIV,
But more symbolic of other viruses,
That have killed people in swaths.
***
We should learn from this year,
In the hopes to avoid it again,
To prevent unneeded deaths,
To the silence of a virus.
***
The important message of today,
Let’s end the stigma of AIDS,
Help push for HIV eradication,
And help by improving education.
