It is a memory. Of things I've done.

What's in a Name?

It is a memory.

Of things I've done.

And said,

and who I've been.

A name is me.

And it is my poetry.

For some,

that's all they see.

Cutting bleeding,

pouring my heart fourth.

Raw emotion laid bare.

I used my real name.

Hoped it would matter.

Make a difference.

In fighting the stigma.

But who am I?

No one.

Just some guy,

who works for a living.

And now,

my secrets are exposed.

My name,

be it fair,

or foolish,

is tarnished,

for good.

So it must change.

The memory must fade.

For a new me to come.

To hide from my past,

I will change it.

What's in a name?

A thing, a title,

a memory to fade.

Mayhaps, a rebirth.
