Everything that exists has a name
give me a moment
I'll try to explain

A short introduction to Onomastics
the study of Names by Greek democratics

If you are a Human
it's called an Anthroponym

If it's home to a dolphin
the correct term is Hydronym

Regarding a country
it's known as a Demonym
this can also be referred to as Ethnonym

A name is such a little thing
the first gift you ever receive
hunter, gatherer, priest or king
a name is magic if you can believe

To ensure what sanity I have will remain
in a world obsessed with power and wealth
i choose to go by any other name
other than myself

some of this randomly came to me while i was trying to sleep last night, my brain decided sleep was for losers and did this instead.. i tried to polish it up a bit today but it still need work...

the inspiration behind it is how we have a name for absolutely everything, we even have a name to identify the study of names... the origin of a name had never occurred to me before and when my imagination grasps on to an idea like that it doesn't let up

i hope you guys like it

i know it's not really a short story but i wasn't sure where else to put it

it's still not finished but i thought i would post it anyway to see what you guys think

That was good. I share my poetry in this section ... And what you wrote I liked.

Everything sure does have a name and sometimes I wish it didn't.

Thanks for sharing. Hope to see more

Peace to you~~>>
