The Only Me I Got

It isn't always easy, living with a disease in a disease-free world.

Then again, it's never been easy living as a black man in a white man's world.

Nor has it been such a picnic living as a homo in a hetero world.

It's not a breeze being me, a black homo living with AIDS, but it's the only me I got.

So I'll keep dreaming the better dream and keep hoping I find a buddy who wants to dream it with me.
