If I Were To Rename Myself

If I were to rename myself I would call myself Temperance.

It would be ironic as heck.

Every time I skipped off to do something impulsive,

You would call my name,

And I would be recollect my better self.


If I were to rename myself I would call myself Patience.

It would be hilarious.

Every time I jumped too soon,

You would call my name,

And I would remember who I was supposed to be.


If I were to rename myself I would call myself Charity.

That would be good.

Every time I ran to self-indulgence,

You would call my name,

And I would become a better me.


If I were to rename myself I would call myself Faith.

It would be a bundle of laughs.

Every time I slipped into despair,

You would call my name,

And I would rise up improved.


"If I were to rename you" said the Great-I-Am

"I would call you "Enough".

Wouldn't that be a laugh?

And every time you introduced yourself

You would remember who you already are.
