My name Is Helpless,
Because that’s who I am.
I don’t do anything,
Because I can’t do it right.

My name is ugly,
Because that’s what I am.
I break all of the mirrors,
Because I can’t stand my sight.

My name is Stupid,
Because that’s how I act.
I’m useless and
I cry every night.

My name is Nothing,
Because that’s what I am.
You tell me to die,
And turn out the light.

My name is Goodbye,
Because that’s what you told me.
You never cared,
Especially not tonight.

My name is Learning,
Because that’s what I’m doing.
I might just be able
To make it out alright.

My name is Beautiful,
Because that’s what I am.
I lay outside
And wish with all of my might.

My is Hope,
Because that’s what I have.
I’m learning to tell you how I feel,
Through the things that I write.

My name is Love,
Because that’s what found me.
Someone who will cry with me,
And hold me at night.

My name is Reborn,
Because that’s what I am.
You might have broken me once,
But I won’t go without a fight.

My name is Rebecca,
Because that’s who I am.
I’ll leave you down and hurt,
Because I have a life to ignite.

I felt helpless while I wrote this. And while I was typing, I had this feeling come over me. Like everything would work out.
