Newly freshly name awarded
Legally on Aug 30th, 2017
Nyleve Eiram Hanf-Campbell
Looking at the old me thinking how
To reinvent myself to
the new me
Going to new heights in my life that
I’ve never reached.
Forgiving the past
As my new beginning starts.
Biblical is what my pastor told me.
To change one’s name to become
Who you need to be.
No longer will I be the shy Evelyn
People used to know me as.
I’m more confident in my life.
More sure of myself.
More aware of who I am.
I know what part of my purpose in life is.
When I was Evelyn, I felt fake.
Like I was living a lie.
As I am Nyleve.
I feel real like my life has meaning now.
No longer do I need
Validation to continue my work.
No longer do I need the old friends who are no longer in my life.
I see truth in my new name
And I tend to stay truthfully to the new me that I am now.
Time to say goodbye to Evelyn and hello
