My name has a meaning

My name, Bojosi Is a fire which started In my mother And consumed Her inside When she delivered Me to this world She says “ When I was imprisoned in a maternity ward at the hospital at the time of your birth son I was alone, none of them I call my relatives I call my friends visited me when I needed their love most and when they asked me, the nurses in white what name I give to you I called you Bojosi ” my name, Bojosi short as it is is a poem that my mother composed when joy and pain of giving birth prevailed in her life my name has a meaning….. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Bojosi is translated loneliness **10th place winner on the contest " April Poem" sponsored by Destroyer Poet**
