My Name

Today …
Today I would like to share with you something
A thing that will always identify me among people
There maybe…maybe a number of people around who have it similar like mine
But hey my name though it could be shared it is mine
Mine alone
Just me and my name have a life and a future
Me and my name have a hope
In my name there is hope and help
For me
I would rather hear it being called
No matter how many times
But it holds hope for me
It holds a future
So here am sharing with you about it my name
As simple as it is
As useless a name it could be to some
To some it is something
And to me it is everything…me
I hear it
She calls it
He calls it
She calls it
He calls it
I hear it they call it
They discuss it…my name
My mother calls it…calling for her son
A son who holds her hopes and the family's …
Now you see
My name has hope in it
If she who is not my sister and not just a friend calls it…my name is a symbol of love
It signifies what I mean to someone, what I have to offer to someone…love
Now you see
If he calls it …I know my father's voice and how he sounds
He might be in need, he might be looking for an extra hand…
And when my name is called
I know I have to rush and help…it is a symbol of help...you see?
Listen to everything I have to tell you about it
It is simple ….
My first name they say, my surname they say
Some call me by my first name and some by my last name …yet still some call me both
But it is still my name….
It has a lot to tell me
A lot for me in it…
If I read of it in the papers or hear of it on the radio
My brain reacts and so does my heart
The two together form a bond that even bonds my every body organ to me
It might be I have a job, it might be I have interviews it might be I have been selected into some school
It might be just my name, yet not about me but…
It makes me closer to my future...you see?
It gets me closer to my career
My name…I like it
So very much that I would love to hear of it
It is a symbol
It is a sign
Of hope and the future…
My name is a part of me
My name is me
And right now it just excited me to mention of it to you
It came to me that I simply share it to you
And here is my name
