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 myself straight in the eye.

I don’t want to stand with the setting sun,
and hate myself for the things I have done.

I don’t want to keep on a closet shelf,
a lot of secrets about myself.

and fool myself as I come and go,
into thinking no one else will ever know.

the kind of person I really am,
I don’t want to dress up myself in sham.

I want to go out with my head erect
I want to deserve all men’s respect.

but here in the struggle for fame and wealth,
I want to be able to like myself.

I don’t want to look at myself and know,
I am bluster and bluff and empty show.

I never can hide myself from me,
I see 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 respecting and conscience free.
