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
