Whats in a name?
A "Naming Poem" is a very strong piece of celebratory work- magic- that expands our understanding of how we are connected, and can bring out the uniqueness and beauty of us all. Every individual is unique and beautiful. This is one poem that arrived in an online workshop with students of English Literature in Hyderabad, Pakistan
My name is black as darkness
My name is white as milk
My name is honest, introverted and decent
My name is sanitiser to lies
My name is my mom, Anita and Pascal
My name is what we give- we get
My name is positions at school
My name is a partner of my own virtues
My name is trustworthy and loyalty
My name is zuban pe maslihat dil darne wala.
I am Naseer Muhammad
