I Have a Name

I have a name, I’m not a shadow
Neither a shadow of my siblings
Nor that of my spouse
I’m not a shadow of my children
I have a name all of my own
I may resemble one of my kin
I may behave like a parent
But underneath all of that
I’m still a unique creation
Unlike any other in all respects
So kindly when you address me
Use the name that is mine
Not this one’s wife
Or that one’s sister
And no not so-and-so’s mother
I am me and proud to be
So be so kind as to call me that
For I do have a name
