What is your Real Name?

In X-2 (Xmen: United), there's a scene where Magneto
turns to John (Pyro a mutant who can manipulate fire).
The following is part of their conversation:

Magneto: What's your name?
John: John
Magneto: What's your REAL NAME John?
John: (after a pause, looking at the lighter in his
hand) Pyro…

The conversation continues about how powerful he could
be etc.

My point... my question to you is:
What is your real name? What do you call yourself?
I call myself a poet. I say "dapoetspeaks" and it
means something! Well, at least to me...

What about you? Do you have a name for yourself or are
you just walking around accepting what everyone else
feels compelled to call you?

Want... not just Need

So this morning in the midst of... well me, I remembered an old gospel song that [to me] is the best gospel love/worship song I knew while growing up.

There's a part that says "I just want to be where you are, dwelling daily in your presence.... I just want to be, I just want to be with You."

WANT! Not just need... but WANT! There’s an actual desire at work here.

Need is out of necessity. When you are ill, you NEED to take anti-biotics, there's no choice there. But WANT implies free-will/choice/desire. I want to spend time with you. I want to go out of my way for your sake - there's no real necessity but I choose to because of the love that I have for you!

Now don't twist my words – I’m not saying that you shouldn't need people, please not at all, but wanting is a desire that you can run to with both hands open.

People need God - Y? Fear of hell? Need a miracle? How bout just… wanting God?
You need your guy/girl - Y? They make you "complete"? (And PS: no mortal should ever have that power) For show? Y do u need them? When was the last time you just WANTED them? Just because...

Want - free will/choice... desire!
Need - necessity/must have! Yes the two are partners but WANT fuels the NEED...
Want more!

A hope that reminds us that every bond can be broken! Every chain will fall and freely to Zion we will trod.
