NaPoWriMo Day 14 Prompt:

Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem that delves into the meaning of your first or last name.

Here’s an analysis of my name 🙂


Poem: Do you say my name?

When your world is tumbling down

And you are seething in pain

That’s when you say my name

When you want something done

And there’s no other option

That’s when you say my name

When you are losing all hope

And you look up to Him

That’s when you say my name

When your belief is shaking

And your mind cannot commit

That’s when you say my name

When someone you love

Is wrestling to live

That’s when you say my name

When fear surrounds your realm

And all you can do is scream

That’s when you say my name

When obscurity is all you see

The way last year has been

That’s when you say my name

When there’s nothing left to dream

And all you think is Thee

That’s when you say my name

A prayer,

That’s what my folks call me,

That’s what my name means

A request, an appeal

When you worship or plea

That’s what my name means

My name gives you strength,

My name possesses optimism,

My name is devotion!
