Dead Name

By Damien Knight 
Is it so hard to say my name

Why insist on getting it wrong

Why make me burn with shame

Instead of making me strong

Does it make you feel big

Like you can control me?

Isn’t that just sick

If you truly cared I’d be free

Free to go by any name I want

But instead people like you

Prove the past can taunt

Well im going to be true

I won’t answer to a dead name

You can’t control me

And I won’t feel shame

I’m finally going to be free
