Self —

What is in my name
Besides exactly who I am?

What is in a name
The one on paper
Then the one I choose
When I go on stage;

The one he whispers
In my ear,
Then screamed  
As he came.

I am all of the above.

What is in a name 
When you marry and take his?

No longer mine,
Mine still —

What I replace,
The future I gain,

No longer mine,
No longer yours,

But ours.
