My middle name // poem

I don't have a middle name
But my first name is unique
So I've never understood the shame 
Of the name that hides within

When I used to ask people
What their middle name would be
They'd hold it back like a secret
Like a piece of their destiny

But why was it that way?
What didn't they want me to see?
Now I sort of understand 
The need to cling to their identity

Everything we have
Is never truly ours
So that one string of letters
Was the only thing of theirs
