Names - Poem by john chizoba vincent

Everyone has one
And it has a meaning
To the life of the beholder;
And to his fate and destiny.
He is answerable To that name,
Whether good or bad, he will.
Many parents watch before they give
A child name because names are spirit.
Names are very symbolic to Africans,
Names differentiate one from another;
It uphold one's integrity and values.
Many never allow their names get stained,
Many have stain their names with evil.
Many protect their names more than their lives
Because it lives a thousand years after they are gone.
A good name is better than wealth and money,
Africans value names with meanings,
We don't answer 'SALT and PEPPER'
Because it is against our culture and tradition.
Africans bear 'KAMBILI, TEMITOPE, IFUNANYA and others because it add values to our tradition.
Lots of laughter and success come from our name,
Everyone has one name and it has Meaning.
What name do you bear?
