What’s In A Name?

Gracie
Grace
amazing grace
sweetest of sounds
and a wretch like me was saved
to birth a miracle –
her.
Edella
Edna Rose
stubborn matriarchal blood
blood in my veins
wearing her independence like a fitted black dress.
Adele
she raised her kin alone
and laughs a hearty laugh
full of life experience
and care for her family
care for me
and for Gracie Edella.
