A reflection on existence
I have a name,
A special sound that you can make,
Just move your lips and expel air
To create the frequency and pitch
That cause me to turn my head to you.

Your name is a chain.
Any name you obtain
Is a power over who
The name belongs to.
Just try it.
Say it.
They turn and look;
You call, they obey it.

And I have a name,
A name you may know,
A sound with a power
I gave to you, so
You can use it,
Abuse it,
Whatever you want,
Just call me, I'll look,
Whether I want to or not.

But I like it.
When you say my name
I enjoy it if you mean it,
Or you don't, all the same.
Just say it.
Say it!
Shout it out, so I feel
The sound of my name
So I know that I'm real.
