Know Myself

I want to know 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 wish to stand with the setting sun
And hate myself for things I have done.
I don’t want to keep on a closet shelf,
A package of secrets about myself.

AndΒ fool myself as I come and go,
In to thinking nobody else will know.
The kind of person I really am,
I don’t want to dress myself with sham.

I want to step out with my head errect,
I want to deservedly receive men’s respect.
And inΒ life struggle for fame and wealth
I wish to be able to like myself.

I don’t want to look in the mirror and know,
That I’m just a bluff, an empty show.
I can never hide myself from me,
I see what others never see.

I know what they will never know,
I can never fool myself, and so,
Whatever happens I want to be,
Self respecting and conscience free.
