What Matters- You or The Meaning of Your Name| Cheerful

The Meaning of Your Name

I like my name and the meaning of it
Deepa means light
But am I supposed to be one of the white bulb of my room or the yellow bulb of the kitchen?
Making everything visible to everyone’s eyes
Am I supposed to be shiny all the time?
Making other people happy or doing everything on time to make other people happy
Do I have to be what my name means or do I identify myself according to me?
What is the meaning of giving meaning to my name?
Is it to identify who am I or who am I supposed to be?
Or is it just to make the word of your name meaningful?
Does this meaning come naturally?

The Meaning of Your Name

If Deepa means light then
What does darkness mean in real life?
What is meaningful to me, light or darkness?
Am I supposed to not like the darkness?
What if I find peace in the darkness sometimes?
What if darkness takes me to the island of no fear?
Does that even matter to anyone?
Or do I pretend not to like it?
My question is do I lighten up my life for myself or for the people around me.
Actually, what matters here?
What determines me?
The meaning of my name or gender or the caste I was born with?

I am Deepa Bohara from Surkhet- a mid-western part of Nepal. I was born on 1998-04-08. I’ve been living with a chronic illness called Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) for 10 years now. Living with Lupus was never easy for me but I found my internal voice in words. In all that time, I’ve discovered Spoken Word poetry, been one of the winners of “Slamming in Surkhet” in 2013, and participated in the National Poetry Slam 2016. I chose this platform to express myself, share my journey and give a voice to my words. I believe that my feelings are living things and I should never let them die. I’ve become a member of Word Warriors- a Spoken Word Poetry collective in Nepal. I have travelled to more than 8 districts, performing poetry and working with hundreds of students spreading my love for poetry. I am a writer, spoken word poet and a bachelor student of Arts at Patan Multiple Campus, Lalitpur, Nepal. Currently, I have established my own business in my hometown. I am a CEO & Founder of CC Group of Company Pvt. Ltd. an IT company located at Birendranagar-4, Surkhet, Nepal.
