Why Nancy Bella Rose? 

Have been asked this question
A thousand of times
Why this? 
Why not something 
From your family background? 

For I am,  what I call myself to be
I am this person called 
Nancy Bella Rose 
This person who writes 
Who doesn’t hide 
Who was just called ‘Nancy’ at first 
For thats what my
Parents decided to call me
It described femininity and beauty 
Neither of them did adequate justice to me
Sounded alien
Yes! My own singular identity 
Wanted to replace it but
Couldn’t, for my folks emotions 
Were connected to it
Then did I come up
With the name Bella
That described what 
I wanted to be
Soft, subtle, feminine but strong 
Foreign yet alluring 
It seemed melodious 
Mine, to my own ears
No one understood my fascination towards it
Called me a fool 
In front, also behind my back 
Didn’t care for it was something 
Which felt 
More familiar to me than my own skin
This was the new me
Free me
Whose past people didn’t knew
She laughed, she joked, she breathed
And she participated  extracurriculars as well! 
Enjoyed her breaking out of her previous shell
She was 
Who was not afraid to love
For whom her name
Resembled love
Paying no heed to the
Stamp of approval
Facing many disapprovals
She went along with it
Adding Rose to it
To complete its beauty 
Her name made her an enigma 
Holding her own anonymity
Tightly within it

P. S. – this post has been made on the request of The Shining Gem.

Hope it answers your question, if not fully then atleast to some extent.
Thank you so much for giving your valuable suggestion.

            I have written about me in my Mystery blogger award. There are some questions I answered that tell something about me. I am a lost soul though😁😁

            1. Well then send me the link if you could. Would love to go through it. But I am meant through poetry, why don’t you tell me something about you. No matter how silly or big that fact or detail is.

              And about being a lost soul… Well who isn’t… If you find mine while roaming around, do hand it back to me. Feeling lonely without it. 😆😜
