They Know ME By A Name


They talk about me

after they have torn my heart

and set it ablaze.

Yes, I am the humanity

you find butchered on the streets


They painted pictures of me

and cried in prayers

as they celebrated faith.

Yes, I am the God

you kill in the name of.


They wrote songs on me

as I was penultimate treasure

for defining the existence of all.

Yes, I am the peace

you trade for the glitter in your pockets.


They know me by a name.

A name not known to me.

    You know me by a name, yet I am nameless. You paint a picture of me yet I am formless. Beautiful thought!
