Am I True 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 days go by
Always to look myself straight in the eye;
I don't want to stand, with the setting sun
And I hate myself for things I have done.
I don't want to keep on a closet shelf
A lot of secrets abount 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 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 pelf
I want to be able to like myself.
I don't want to look at myself and know
That I'm bluster and bluff and empty show.
I can never 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,
What happens, I want to be
Self-respecting and conscience free

Lama menghilang, tetiba muncul dengan poemlah pulak... Demam panas ke sasau minah ni??? hehehe... Demam pun tak, sasau pun tak... pening je, almaklum terperap 2 hari dalam kelas leadership trainning... hahaha
Poem ni, is one of the exercise masa trainning tu. But, frankly it's a NICE piece of art! Simple words but have a very DEEP meaning. And YES, putting it in this blog is IMPORTANT to me as I can read, read, and read it when ever I want. If it stays in the trainning handout, I BELIEVE it will be forgotten before I know.
It's better to DO than not to DO.....
