I was one of those that others did not dare to be
I went where others feared to go
And did what others failed to do
I asked nothing from those who gave nothing
And reluctantly accepted the thought of eternal
loneliness ...Should I fail
I have seen the face of terror
Felt the sting of fear
And enjoyed the sweet taste of a moment's love
I have cried, pained and hoped
But most of all I have lived times
That others would say are best forgotten
At least now today
I am able to say
That I am proud of what I was
