I want to be able as days go by to look myself straight in the eye.
I don't want to stand with the setting sun (time of death) and think
of things I have or haven't done, I want to go with my heart erect.
I want to deserve all men's respect, I want to be able to like myself.
I don't want to look at myself and know that I am a bluster, a bluff
and an empty show.
I can never hide myself from me, I see what others may never see.
I know what others may never know.
I can never fool myself and so whatever happens, I want to be self-
respecting and conscience free.
