MY NAME





I have a name
It is a name everyone knows
It is a name everyone calls me
It is a name given to me by my father
A name given to me by my mother
A name they all call me
A name I write with ink
It is my name
It is just a name
It doesn’t define who I am
It is just a name
Like a label on a tin
It is just a name
A name it is
This is my name
A name
A name
I dont like the name
I want to change the name
It doesn’t define who I am
It is just a name
Im deeper than the label
The label is just too simple
It doesn’t define who I am
It is just a name
Ive picked a new name
But it is more like a sentence
It is long but it defines me
It is who I am
Can I tell them what my new name is?
I can imagine how hard theyll laugh
I love my new name
I dont want sarcasm to ruin it
I dont care what they all call me
I know my name
I know who I am
Im more than a label
Im a more complex being
I call myself my new name
It is who I am
The world can give me a label
Everyone can call me what they like
But truly
Trulytruly
I know who I am
Im more than a label
I am me
I am more than just a name
