Identity (part deux)

My name is not Krystal,
you can’t break my heart;
my name is not Peter
for I’m all grown-up.

My name is not Tori,
I don’t have affairs;
but you may call me ‘Jewel’
for I am quite rare. – Jacqueline Hallenbeck

From “Poem-atic” a book by Jacqueline Hallenbeck coming soon. Send comments to We would love to hear what you think!
