I: ipseity #AtoZChallenge


Ipseity: selfhood; individual identity, individuality, from the Latin ipse ‘self’.

There are no poems today:

the words I woke up with

refuse to match.

The song my soul was singing,

burned and crashed.

Sitting here forlorn,

wondering what to say

I turned to my ipseity

looking for a rhyme

some words with gravity.

As the darkness departed,

soft was the voice that answered

impavid and straight:

“there are no lies here, nor truth

only worlds that YOU create.”
