The Gift from God |Poem on names

In a place of variety on each turn

Everywhere something new to learn

Each with an identity so unique, yet same

There’s one thing that speaks half of you, your name

 

Columbus roamed this planet through seas

A name of which, each one agrees

 

Alexandra the great, the conqueror of lands

Died along with times and sands

What we know of him is not face but name

Something gilded because of his aim

 

What’s in a name? once one did ask

That very line brought Shakespeare bask

 

Nothing can be engraved in the heart

Like a beautiful name and a splendid art

 

 

” The gift from God”  it means they say

So truly the name is named by the way

 

Though it is true

you’re not your name but it is you

The tides of time wash your feet

All that remains behind is your deed

 

Choose wisely your deeds, not name

In reality, this is more like a game

The harder the level, the bigger the feat

And even greater it goes when you repeat

 

Step up to the dreams unrealized

The joy goes greater when enlarge sized
