What's Your Name?

"What's in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet"
-William Shakespeare-

Oh Bill! Such brilliance and yet
So little psychological truth

I have a secret to share...
My name is...
Gabriela
Ahhhhhh!

And never was this name used as a child
EXCEPT
When I was in trouble,
When someone was mad,
Or when someone didn't know me

Gabriela is not my name
That's how I truly feel about it

On paper I'm Gabriela
But in true, real, everyday life
I'm Gaby

Parents
STOP giving your children
Names you're not going to call them!

Don't name your child
Anastasia
And  then only call her
Ana
-_-
