Poetry: “In a name”

Musing on names and naming ourselves.

***~***~***~***

In a name

Prized possession
Deeply tied
To your very inner soul
Keep it safe
Talisman
Only thing uniquely yours
There is power
In that word
Slowly shaped you over time
Imbibed with feelings
Said out loud
Familiar and intimate
Enemies can wield it too
Fling it hard
And leave such marks
Keep it closely
Keep it safe
Share with those that know you best
