Names
don’t really matter in the long run.
My name gets butchered
up, down, and sideways.
It’s fine,
I understand what your trying to say.

Names REALLY matter in the long run.
A friend named Sean at birth
is named Stefanie today.
She’s no longer Sean,
she was never Sean.

Names are fickle things
created by fickle beings
trying to place meaning on the meaningless.

Names are fluid
and constantly changing.
Names have a way of being solid
and holding you firmly to something.

Names are a belief
they are a personality
Names are powerful
but can strip that power away.

Names might or might not matter in the long run
but they are most definitely important now.
