My name is Icklejabob, Whereas everybody sees each others names as names, we see our own names as definitions to who we are. My name...
Ickle= small ja= Jeffrey Acocella Bob= a very dull common name
Ickle is something that someone would say is small, baby like, my name is saying "I am nothing and know one" but at the same time humanizing my efforts to separate my humanity by stating what ties me to society, my real name, in the middle. Bob is one of the dullest names in the world, you almost fell pity just hearing it, and it seems to blend in. seen on a higher note, it is saying that i am know one, i am just a ripple in an endless ocean of humanity. humanity is cruel and destroying everything we know as reality, and is making reality into a dream, at the same time destroying anything else that lives with us, we are competing with an invisible adversary. i am saying that my voice, who i pretend to be, is drowned in a sea of humanity, i am saying that even though i shoot for change, i still can be defined as human, as the reckless violent wave of society, that is Bob, the Ickle takes a standpoint from the Universe, how insignificant i am towards the Universe, how insignificant we are. the thing is, that this name is not a dark name, i could have chosen names that mean the same thing that sound so much darker, but the truth is, i wanted it to sound stupid, random and funny, because i don't want to view everything i just said as a demeaning factor of my mortality, i want to see it as a defining, reminiscent structure, to which i can create goals and get confidence and ambition from
