Not By Any Other Name

My name is strong

A blockade protecting me
Expressing me
It is harsh when it needs to be

But soft and comforting

In times of sorrow
A head-banging, loud, confident name
An easily whispered one

It flows and ripples until the end
and sizzles to a finish

It will jolt you like a knife in the back

When you know there's something wrong
Or brings tears to your eyes
If spoken like the name of a winner
It bites
It heals
It stands alone
My name is Alex
