Emily Dickinson - Drowning is not so pitiful

Drowning is not so pitiful
As the attempt to rise
Three times, 'tis said, a sinking man
Comes up to face the skies,
And then declines forever
To that abhorred abode,
Where hope and he part company --
For he is grasped of God.
The Maker's cordial visage,
However good to see,
Is shunned, we must admit it,
Like an adversity.

In the developing world, syphilis remains a significant health concern during pregnancy; its prevalence among pregnant women attending antenatal centres in Africa ranges from 3 to 18%7. Infections of Neisseria gonorrhoeae and Chlamydia trachomatis, which are the causative bacteria of gonorrhoea and chlamydia, respectively, remain significant health concerns.
