MY NAME

What lies in me is an empty heart,

that was broken in the beginning, from the start.

For so long I’ve wondered where the beginning

of me started.

What causes me to search for kin I never knew,

I just want to know who before me carried this name too.
What lies in my empty heart is space,

aching, breaking without a trace.

Where's my family, where did they go?

There are so many people I would’ve loved to know.

What causes me to search for kin I never knew,

I just want to know who before me carried this name too.

What lies in my space is a heart that’s not complete,

for I have a family that I need to meet.

This is not a quest for royalty or fame,

But this is a quest for the strength of my name.

What tracks did they make while on this earth?

What beliefs did they have, what values did they hold?

For one day I pray that this mystery will unfold.

What causes me to search for kin I never knew,

I just want to know who before me carried this name too.
