This is not my name.

This name is one I chose.

I will not give you my other name.

My name is my own.

Yet, I do not own it.

I don’t want to own it.

The name is theirs.

They bore the name for a millennia.

It will be theirs for even longer.

I will not keep my name.

This name is kinder.

Not tainted by the other.

This is blank slate

All this is, is what I make it.

But this is not my name.
