“What’s in a name?
When someone calls, how do we respond?
If someone needs us, how do we answer?
When help comes, who do we thank?
If we answer, what do we say?
If life is give and take,
Who keeps tally without a name?”
Travis smiled as the poetry club clapped. It was one of the few times anyone appreciated his work and he wouldn’t forget it. “Thank you.”
As he took his seat, the woman next to him leaned close and asked, “That was powerful. Who was your inspiration?”
He smiled, not sure if she’d appreciate his answer.
