The confusion that is life is engendered in the soul every man.
But the question remains on the tips of our hearts.
Are we made by the names we are given?
Or are we made simply by who we are?
So tell me your name.
For I know the who that is you.
Do you know me with the face I wear?
No.
It is a mask that hides the eyes,
Of my true intentions.

Thought provoking! It's a fact that our names do make a difference! Teachers tend to acknowledge children that have standard names like Michael, Ann, etc. Woe to Buelah and Burfurd!

Christopher my man,
cruising the forums tonight,
this caught my eye
and demanded a reply.
Though never trite
and hardly jaded,
this verse of yours,
has me elated!

Great poem... reminds me of one by Carl Sandburg called Phizogs! Yours is every bit as thought provoking

Thanks everyone. As a side note, you might try ms deVines "Who Am I, If I'm Not Me" in Dark Passions. It is of similar bent, and WAY better!
