Names

Not your name. Not mine.

The national vendor.


At primary school, I was known.
They laughed at me. Point me.
Dumped me like a useless toy.

The Bananacue boy.


At high school, I was very known.
Like a little mosquito with no teeth,
they stamped me very easily,
and I was hurt so badly.

The little choppy chap.


At tertiary, I’m famous in Wales.
They have eyes like a sun.
And morals like a weather here.


Treatments are unfair.
All bears are everywhere.

Stop wailing. Own the pain.
Don't lose your fame.


What will be my next name?

I am truly enjoying your poems and the honesty it convenes. This poem reflects a child being bullied who raise and stood up for his merit and fame and eventually succeeded in life.

Keep that positive attitude and view of life.

Voting up and sharing a good read.

Howdy Roland (Lanzskie) -

Brother Adala - Interesting that you peddled the bananacues, but your tormentors ate the things. Sometimes it is fun to be a mosquito with no teeth, right?

Forgetting how others called the names - it was fun reading this smiling (ruefully?) piece. I enjoyed the discomfort of it all...

Gotta say it, Lanzskie - I visited the Filipino street foods photo collection and I suppose that I will want to stick with hot dogs and chitlins henceforth. :-) Also- a trip to your Facebook gallery (in buildup) was more restful to the eyes and hopeful of the future without any dead birds and old chicken eggs in view... May I suggest to you that you might enjoy playing with your camera and some of the pano photo programs you can jump into from some links in several of my recent pano hubs. If you do that, I'd enjoy seeing some that you worked out. Just saying.

Nice meeting you here on the HubPages. Have fun yourself as you go about entertaining the rest of us.

Gus :-)))
