A Stigmatised Statistic
© by Caroline (Caz) McElwee

Why won't somebody listen?
Don't you want to understand?
I'm a stigmatised statistic
Please, someone
Anyone
Won't you hold my hand?

I'm going to lie here
Without resistance
And listen to your lies
And wonder what the hell it takes
To open up your eyes

Why won't somebody listen?
Don't you want to understand?
I'm a stigmatised statistic
Please, someone
Anyone
Won't you hold my hand?

I'm going to lie here
Without resistance
And watch my body waste
My T cells are a bloody mess
They just can't stand the pace

I'm going to lie here
Without resistance
And try to hide the pain
There may be nothing to be done for me
But please, I'm begging you
Don't let me die in vain

Why won't somebody listen?
Don't you want to understand?
I'm a stigmatised statistic
Please, someone,
Anyone
won't you hold my hand?
Hold my hand
My hand
Hand...
