Don’t Label Me With A Name

Don’t label me with a name.

Don’t label me by colour.

I am me,

I am no other.

Don’t foster on me your bigotry,

Nor peddle me your deception.

I’ll live my life as it pleases me,

Through my own perception.

My life has been surrounded

by sycophants like you,

With words full of nothingness

Thinking they will do.

Never can you fill my mind

With hatred and detestation.

I will live it in my way,

With steadfast determination.

Take your petty criticism and

Take away your disdain.

Live your life removed from me

As I quickly forget your name.

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller and in May 2018 his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? became a number one bestseller on four separate Amazon sites: America, UK, Canada and Australia. Although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows best; murders laced by the mystery involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he writes, namely: Why? A Complicated Love, and the intriguing story titled The Story That Had No Beginning. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television in the UK.
