Naming a poem...

I have always had a things for writing poetry. I love writing poems off the cuff, almost automatically... I don't change them when I am done. The thing is that I never seem to be able to give them titles that are relevant to the content and theme. I need help with this... I'm going to write a poem now and then I would like comments on what the title should be as well as why you think it needs the title that you think it should have... Being one comes to be deep Shakes foundations and faith Starts to crumble Bring your soul to bear And make shadows and night seem fair In need and times The very nature of self seems unable, Unwilling to declare weakness... In other times Places Feelings tend to grow to feeble senseless waste... And now for the critique...

Hm i'm not sure if you will like these title but maybe you can call it Losing Faith Crumbling Achilles Heel (this means weakness just in case u didnt kno) These are the titles that first came to my mind. Perhaps my sister who is a better poet should of replied to this but she is in school. XD gave it my best shot

I think only you can name your poetry. I also write poetry and if I title them its based on what I'm feeling at the time I'm writing it.
