What My Name Means to Me


Rai, that's my name

To some its only a three letter word

To others its a foreign name

Traditionally it means lightning, or thunder, or even trust

But it means something special to me

Rai means a love of poetry and theater

Rai means roller blades are the best form of transport

Rai means I'll always have my best friends' backs and they have mine

Rai means no matter how much to tear me down, I'll get back up

Rai means black and blonde hair that looks the best at sunset

Rai is not just some three letter word, or foreign name

Rai is everything

That is what my name means to me
