No, what I mean is that the word "Geometry" and the words "BoundingBox" for example these I need to read them from the shape not writing them by hand because I have many shapes and each shape has different headers

A complete guess as it's really not clear what you're asking: If you want to get the list of fields of a structure, use fieldnames. To then use one of these names then use dynamic field name syntax:
%get list of fields
names = fieldnames(yourstructure);
%get value of 1st field
yourstructure.(names{1}) %() to access field whose name is in names{1}
