Definition of Self

If the definition of self is expressed,
Would you define it in a way to impress?
If money talked, by giving to receive,
Does intelligence give to deceive?
The role I display to others for a reaction,
Forms of inertia will push towards an action,
Cause and affect; respect of all I neglect,
Focus for the view of the mind to collect,
More than I can deal with, so I’ll relax,
Unstable structure in motion of a collapse,
Brought into form, hopefully preserved,
Maintain its stability & integrity deserved,
Observed & moved to another view,
Unless continued; it’s something to do.
