Who are you, if you are not your name?
If you make a mistake, then who is to blame?
Though others may describe you,
Your personal thoughts can ring true;
But you still don't pertain
The power of a name.
It is impossible to give words a direction
They may get lost without the intention
Or perhaps they'll travel to thousands of eyes,
And leave you embarrased, without a disguise.
The importance of words will be lost in vain
Without the power of a name.
A miller's daughter was said to spin gold
But she tried and couldn't do as told.
So instead a man named Rumpelstiltskin
Was promised the daughter's first kin.
This accident would never have came,
If only she had the power of his name.
Now the same goes for both you and me
If we live up to our names, we shall remain free.
We can take credit for what we do
And encourage our friends whenever they feel blue.
We can explain to others where they went wrong
Or instead fill their hearts with a song
We can take pride in what we became
With only the power of our names.
