'Problems'

Poem By Bernard Snyder

Have you ever been in a situation,
In which you insulted others...
When you had a preference,
To begin to use your own given name?
And others became offended by that?
Others became offended...
Because you announced a clarity of your identity.
AND...
This offended?
AND...
You then became so proud of who you were,
Your entire presence began to threaten?
Especially those unaccustomed to having an identity!
The ones from birth until death,
Are only known by their nicknames.
And they are related to people who will never know,
Their real names.
Ever!

Have you ever been in a situation,
In which you insulted others...
When you had a preference,
To begin to use your own given name?

And the next thing they want you to do,
Is to get 'right' with God.
