What is a name...really?
Some say your name is your reputation
In the South, many generations of people rely on it
they rely on havng a certain kind of name
Some people hide behind them
using a different name for public.
Some people change them,
to make a new life for themselves
Facebook has many using a "new name".
The Angels whisper a quote from
William Shakespere to me~
a line from "Romeo Juliet":
a rose by any other name would smell as sweet
We truly don't know others by the name they use
Names can change; as when some marry
or there is a life changing moment in one's life
We truly know each other by our hearts.
When the connection is made in Heaven,
nothing on earth can unbind it.
