I wrote this poem based on the song by Matthew West called 'Hello My Name Is". It is a song about defeating the labels that are pasted on too many people. I decided to write this poem to raise awareness of the names, labels, and feelings that are plaguing so many people's lives. Remeber, words don't define you, and there is always hope. Stay strong, enjoy the poem, and spread the word!
