Myself


I have to live with myself and so,
I want to be fit for myself to know,
I want to be able as days go by,
Always to look at myself straight in the eyes,
I don't want to stand with the setting sun,
And hate myself for the things I've done,
I want to go out with my head erect,
I want to deserve all men respect,
For here in the struggle for fame and self,
I want to be able to like myself,
I don't want to look at myself and know,
I'm bluster a buff and a empty show,
I never can hide myself from me,
I see what others may never see,
I know what others may never see,
I know what others may never know,
I never can fool myself and so
Whatever happens I want to be,
Self respected and conscience- Free
