Ladies and gentlemen, we have the honor to share with you a poem by Dom Agius.
'We Are', a poem written for the World AIDS day 2010 and published exclusively at


We are Bold.
We are Brave.
We are Stubborn and we are Strong.
We have been Red, Hot and Blue.
We are, on occasion,  All the Colours of the Rainbow.
We have too often been forgotten or mislaid as Invisible
But, my dear, Please Understand
We Are Everywhere and we are Not Going Away.
You can talk of Genetics and Lifestyle Choices
While we are busy Living.
We will Work.
We will Dance.
We will Love and Kiss,
Laugh, Lust and Learn.
We will not be Unheard.
Sometimes we are Battered and Bruised but we will
Be Beaten.

We Are.
