Narcissism is Good

Narcissism is good.
Nothing, spare self, has value.

In the beginning (for no reason)
were
the Particles,
the Laws,
the Chance.

Self, born from impersonal cauldron
finds itself
with
Itself.
It gives Itself
value.
It gives all else
value.

I value
myself.
Nothing else values anything
for me.

"All things are nothing to me" (Max Stirner).
Nothing is everything to me.

Axiology is autobiography.

Don't judge me
Don't censure me
Don't improve me
Don't punish me

But praise me,
for being me.

I confer value on
anything, everything, nothing, something,
as I deem fit.

I am fit
for anything, nothing, something.
It all depends on me.

Narcissism is good.
Who are you to say otherwise,
you orphan of particle, law, and chance?

You are nothing to me,
or something or everything
if I so choose...

Or am I chosen by
particle, law, and chance?

Never mind,
all is matter;
it doesn't matter;
I matter
to me--for now.

I am my own anchor
gyroscope,
map.

This is beautiful and powerful. What a great satire of the narcissist and nihilist agenda!

My favorite line is, "Axiology is autobiography."
