What does your name mean to you?

When we are born
As children we are given lasting names,
And as we learn
We strive to prove ourselves by gaining fame.
How should a name make one feel?

We are all marked
By these letters of great meaning and rank,
What you should know
That there is a great deal your name should make.
Where shall you go with your name?

The days will pass
As we realize our potential in time,
To lose our names
Would be a big shame as well as a crime.
Why should our names define us?

To be honest
Names are unique no matter how alike,
Those who mock them
Should probably go off and take a hike.
When will names shine like the stars?

So if I may ask you a most heartfelt question,
What does your name mean to you?


MVP-Most Valuable Poet

everybody that have a name means something
as you stated, no one have the right to mock or ridicule
you express your thoughts with purpose-keep writing


Thanks for the like. I do hate it when people make fun of others just for something that could be unique and different
