Self

Self: a self-referential meaning. That is inherent is the sense of the word itself. It is self-referential in the sense of a recursive acronym. For example, WINE. Wine represents, ‘WINE Is Not an Emulator’. The first letter of the first word represented by the acronym, is the acronym itself. In terms of meaning, this translates to defining self with self present—and key—in the definition.

Other words of a similar nature may be, ‘truth’, and ‘love’. Concept-constructs of that which can be imagined purely by itself, with no references or relations to other things or standards. In other words, of that that exist without necessary relation to others, being independent of context-dependent interpretation. Simply ‘selfly’—or ‘self-ful’. Words of this nature can have no exact opposites, like the number ‘0’ in a way.

Both self-referential in meaning and existence, self is a noun that admits no adjectival qualification. For instance, there can be no such thing as ‘good self’ or ‘bad self’. Self is self-contained: it is exactly what it is.

Beautiful.

Memories

He never seems to leave her
because she lives inside;
the pleasant and the hard
and all the shades between.

Touch me,
move me,
hamper me,
heal me;
complicit in where I am today—
where I am tomorrow
if I’ll let.

To choose because of you;
to choose despite you;
you appear as you will
something to relish or leave.

Love.

Experience.

People.

Choices.

Living.

How you will be

Who you want to be
by what you think you ought to have
How you want to be
by who you think you ought to be

Who will you be
By what you want others to think or not
How will you be
By what you feel you see you think
By what you feel you think you see
From what you see you sense you see
