The Importance of a Name

By: Brooks Anthony

Though I am not great

I have become a name*

The problems I’ve faced

The tasks I’ve completed

Have made me this name

Even when the tides are turned

I have become a name*

Even when I fail in my trials

I have become a name*

My name is no other’s

My name is my own

For no other shall share the name I possess

Many can try, but none shall succeed

I may be heckled and possibly harassed

But my name will never be confined

This name I have made for myself

And above all else

I have made my name ... me.
