Digt
Dette digt er skrevet af Innocent Mtula, en 15-årig elev fra St. Michael's School i Zomba, Malawi.
Han er medlem af en af de mange anti-AIDS-klubber over hele landet, der får støtte af bl.a. UNICEF:

AIDS is not the plural of help
AIDS is not a dream
which goes away when one wakes up.
AIDS is the beautiful name of an ugly disease.
Yet I thought it was a dream
AIDS means opening afar
the bodies' gates against infections;
And all manner of disease
come in to stay and to destroy.
And I know it.
The pain is greater and deeper.
Because I know that AIDS helps me only to die.
The pain is deeper still when friends avoid me.
Not looking at me straight in the eye.
and I know why.
I have only one cry for friends and relatives
Look not at me with eyes full of fear,
It's worse to look at me with eyes of sympathy
But treat me with a handshake and a smile.
And I need it.
