One Day

If you know where this is from let me know... credit where credit's due. 

If you feel benevolent and particularly generous, this writer always appreciates things bought for him from his wishlist

Written by David Wojnarowicz - the photo is him as a child.
I quote here from someone else -
'The artist, writer, photographer, performer,filmmaker, and activist David Wojnarowicz died of AIDS in 1992. He was 37 years old. AIDS was the last of a series of traumas
that Wojnarowicz experienced over the course of his short life.As a child he was sexually and physically abused; during adolescence he survived periods of homelessness and drug use; and as an adult he repeatedly confronted homophobia and AIDS discrimination,
one of the most intense episodes of
which included the withdrawal of funding by the National Endowment for the Arts for an exhibition
that featured his photography and
writing. Perhaps because of his intimacy with both physical and psychic suffering, Wojnarowicz
was able to create artwork that was
renowned for its uncompromising rage and magnificent tenderness.'
