They Told Me Not To ..

They told me not to change my name .. all the people that used to know me. All the people that said they were for me. All the people that said they'd support me. They told me not to change my name .. all the people that were "family" no real blood, he's not my daddy, couldn't hardly even fathom ..

They told me not to change my name but my REAL name is Natalie, my real name is Nichole those two names are for sure ..

They told me not to change my name .. well my birth name is Natalie Nichole Carrizalez but "Carrizalez" is not my heritage, I can't even pretend to want it ..

They told me not to change my name .. when I don't have a real connection, it's supposed to be "Williams" but I don't even feel THAT connection ..

So I didn't change my name .. I just used the part thats MINE, the part that my Mother made ALL MINE, the part that has MY BLOOD in every line ..

They told me not to change my name, NO DISRESPECT to those concerned .. I just can't keep on pretending to be part of something I never really was ..

They told me not to change my name .. so I didn't, it's still mine.. I'll be a "Carrizalez" for life but I CHOOSE to go by ...

They told me not to change my name .. I already said what I had to say, I hope I left no one hurt by MY NAME, It's MY CONCERN not theirs ...

They told me not to change my name so now when I intro I say..

Hello, my name is Natalie Nichole. I no longer feel like I'm using my sisters fathers name..

They told me not to change my name .. so my signature is the same but I made two just in case for my OWN persons sake..

They told me not to change my name but I AM NATALIE NICHOLE

I am a complex striving girl living in an ordinary world..

To them I changed my name .. but truthfully It's the same I just started using the part I consider Is truly MINE to claim..

I'm Natalie Nichole aka TheOnlyNC
