May I Introduce Myself?
Let me introduce myself for all the world to see,
my dignity has flown away
from social chains I'm free.
We go through life, acting our part - showing our better side,
until one day we fluff our lines
and truth no longer hides.
We're on the stage, the stage of life, no prompter is in sight,
we make a mess - we look a fool,
right there - in the limelight.
Our dignity, that's been our mask, is stripped off like a plaster,
we soldier on with scraps of strength,
the best that we can muster.
Embarassment, our greatest foe, has laid our soul down bare,
removing all its furnishings,
till we no longer care.
With nothing left to hang on to, our soul no longer aches,
but could it be that what was there,
was there for pride's sake?
Let me introduce myself, my heart has been set free,
my vanity has flown away
and all that's left is - me.
