Names

Behind every name is a story.
A tale that time shall tell.
Behind every name is a story that someone knows too well.
The letters that form this name mean nothing on their own,
But together they have a purpose.
Together they have a home.
Those letters spell out more than thousands of them could.
They spell out a story of evil and of good.
They teach a lesson of horror and defeat.
They keep a person orderly and neat.
They define the very essence of whom, what, and how.
And they hold deep dark secrets that no one knows right now.
Thrown together letters form a name.
And name to treasure and a name to blame.
That name defines more than all else could
It defines a person, no matter how beaten or misunderstood.
To each his own,
Your name being your first home.

Very dynamic. You can tell you feel this is absolutely true because of the certainty you show, and you're right. I think you know that even if your name is different or the same as others, you're still you with your own story, but you also know that even those unfortunates without a loving  and caring family, the children from broken homes, even if they have no definite name, they still have their own story. Beautifully illustrated. ;)
