Obsvsbo- thank you! I picked that particular font simply because it appealed to me at the time. Your observation however, made me think about how a 'military' font adds another slice of truth to my poem though. Soldiers, too, grapple with losing their individuality on the outiside while trying to maintain it within.

As for what I'm choking on- it's the definition of my own name. When people hear your name they immediately have a physical and emotional reaction, be it subtle or obvious. That reaction is the definition you create for yourself. I think everyone struggles with how to be completely authentic to their true selves outwardly while filtering the variations of their personality within that aren't always visible but alter the defintion of their name all the same. Make sense?

Freya13friday- I appreciate the 5 star rating, thank you! Even more so, I'm glad you can relate to my poem. I'm flattered you find me inspiring. =)

I really enjoyed this poem. The view I got from it was that you feel as if you can't be yourself around people and so you're expressing yourself at the only place where you feel most comfortable. You feel as if you have something extraordinary to show to people but they cannot see it.
I think you have a talent. Definitely keep writing.

Mercy, I will think twice the next time I hear a unique or odd name :-) - I liked the way you dramatized this poem and skillfully laid it to rest at the end - Making it clear to 'all' your intent, starting from line one - I enjoyed your selection of words and how they affected me as I carefully read them - This is the type of poem that I find most enjoyable when it is read slowly, giving thought to each and every word used - It also leaves me with a dying desire to hear the pronunciation of ... YOUR NAME :-).

potent - but i don't like all caps

it seems to be jumping off the page... i guess that was your intent... but I don't like it in all caps, and the font is too much.
