Dying to Myself

aids500

Dec. 1st; World AIDS day 

I live in sin, dying to myself I live;
Life is no longer mine, but belongs to sin;
My good is from heaven, my evil I give to myself,
From my own unbound will, which has been stolen from me.
My freedom is a slave, my divinity has made itself
Mortal.
Oh, unhappy state!
To what misery, to what life I’ve been born!

Michelangelo, Unfinished sonnet
