Hyena Square

This is a story of one of Tanzanian young lady Lisa and her journey of change with Aids.Please visit to know the mission of young Lisa against Aids in Tanzania.

This video was made by Maweni Farm Media. Im touched by their documentary work that they have done on Aids and on Children. The website above have section on their work.

~ Blood Orange ~

Peel and Peel
The orange surface I’m in
Satisfy your search
Knowing where I contracted pain
Dig into the citrus of me
To seize the proof
In where I strayed wrong
As you peel out of my skin
Then you slash in half my soul
So you know there is a core
Within this, a flesh pigmented in blood
Will you be afraid to contract my pain?
Infectious with just a touch
Do you find Aids in here?
Or is it death that you fear
Maybe to fall a victim of pain
But I’m born in pigmented flesh
Blotched in stain
Which appears through your eyes
It’s a stain of blood
Somehow you forgot
That I am what I always been
Blood Orange

As a child I use to be afriad of eating this type of orange, thinking it was real blood. Thank you Maweni Farm Media for opening my eyes on Aids in Tanzania

This is very good and I thought, quite powerful -- in portraying the fear of that disease.
