The name Devin Shakur, a pseudonym for the writer (and her son's "government" name), tells a very raw and honest truth. Some may call it "speaking with two lips", but the writer asserts a very candid and straightforward honesty about who she is, who she was and what God is molding her to become.

"I don't claim perfection, because if I were perfect, you'd have to hang me on the cross and that would hurt. I've been hurt enough. God is still working on me."

The meaning of the name "Shakur" is grateful or thankful.
