Name

Hi, my name is _________ .

 

Is that who I am?

Can it be contained within that noun?

Would I be the same person with a different name?

 

“A rose by any other name would smell as sweet”

Is my name an appropriate descriptor of who I am then?

 

Can that seemingly random combination of symbols somehow communicate something about who I am?

Is it able to tell anything about me?

 

What impression does it leave?

Why does it matter?

 

Sometimes, I don’t feel like what my name says.

I just feel…

Me.

 

There’s no name to my own consciousness.

It’s just there.

 

Sometimes, I can forget where I am.

I can forget who I am.

In that context, my name doesn’t matter.

 

I’m just a person.
