Note to myself

I have to live with myself, and so,

I want to be fit for myself to know,

I want to be able as the days go by,

Always to look me straight in the eye,

I don’t want to stand with the setting sun

And hate me for the things I’ve done.

I don’t want to keep it on a closet shelf

A lot of secrets about myself,

And fool myself as I come and go

Into thinking that nobody else will know

The kind of man I really am,

I don’t want to dress myself up in sham.

I want to go out with my head erect,

I want to deserve all men’s respect.

But here in this struggle for fame and pelf,

I want to be able to like myself.

I don’t want to think as I come and go

That I’m bluster and bluff and empty show.
