What’s in a name?!….

He named his kid
In the name of his dead father,
And yet someone asked
What’s in a name?

Every time he heard Lisa
His eyes searched for lost love,
And yet someone asked
What’s in a name?

She with love gave him a nickname
And no one else had the right to call him by that name except hers,
And yet someone asked
What’s in a name?

The name got fame & it was a legend
And the name became a story,
Yet someone asked
What’s in a name?

It was just a name Adolf Hitler
But I don’t think an infant will have that name again!
Yet someone asked
What’s in a name?

There was a list of names with the cops who had their guns loaded
Names that were to be on RIP section in newspaper tomorrow
Well yet someone asked
What’s in a name?

The woman never liked to hear the name of that rapist
She cried when someone did,
And yet someone asked
What’s in a name?

The way the mother called his son
No one could add that love to his name,
Yet someone asked
What’s in a name?

Some names become curses
Some become blessings
Some are legendary
Some a sign of love or hatred
And yet someone asked
What’s in a name?

There is a lot in a name
Yes. There is.
I hope no one asks again
What’s in a name?
