"I am Happy to The Point of Fear" -Ralph Waldo Emmerson

Whats in a name?
To much is in a name
A simple assortment of letters,
holds to much power.
The ability to strike fear,
To cause pain,
To conjure up love
Or even Anger.
All in a simple sound

Whats in a name?
Beauty is in a name
A beauty of inquiry,
Or of longing,
A beauty meant for joy,
but what creates mystery
The beauty of a title,
the beauty of being uniue,
Being recognized...

Whats in a name...?
What could hold my attention?
But the meaning of the name...
The thought that lies in it,
The beauty of it,
the power within it
that makes me tremble,
with fear,
With pain
With anger...
But with love...
The beauty of my inquiry
longing for that joy,
that mysterious title,
that uniquness of the name...
For no other name...
could be as easily recognized
As is one,
In my heart...

So... Whats in a name...?
All that matters.
