What's in a name?

To some people,

Names are everything.

Charming, isn't it?

"Hey, what's your name?"

"Oh, I like that name."

Everyone seems to think

Name implies gender and race.

Guess what?

It doesn't.

So, what are names for?

They make you believe

You and you alone exist.

And when someone else comes

With that same lovely name...

It crushes you.

You're not the only one,

You're not special anymore.

So many of you,

Take those names for granted.

You think it will last forever?

Do you?

Ha ha ha...

Of course you do...

Tell me, how do you think we feel?

We've forgotten

Who we are,

And what we are.

We stumbled about,

trying to find our place.

Trying to find our name.

What's in a name?

Your soul.

So, all those with souls,

All those with names,

They treat each other the same.

Tell me then,

So I can finally understand...

Why is it,

When I was given

A new name

You turned me away?


Do you consider this a fake name?

It is a second attempt

That isn't good enough?

Unworthy, unlike the original?

Is it the name

That makes the completion?

Kingdom Hearts,

Help me understand.

Help me understand...

What is wrong...

With my name?
