Myself!!

The years I was Director at a Home Health Agency, I kept a motivational file. A collection of materials to share with the staff to keep them going. The other day I pulled that file out. It is full of Golden information. I found a poem that was given to me by one of the staff. Her grandmother had given it to her, which made her stop and think. I reread this and wanted to share it with everyone.

Myself

By  Edgar Albert Guest

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 stand with the setting sun

And hate myself for the things I have done.

I don’t want to keep on a closet shelf

A lot of secrets about myself,

And fool myself as I come and go

Into thinking that nobody else will know

The kind of a person I really am;

I don’t want to dress myself up 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 think as I come and go

That I’m bluster and bluff and empty show.

I never can hide myself from me—

I see what others may never see,

I know what others may never know,

I never can fool lmyself– and so,

Whatever happens, I want to be

Self-Respecting and conscience free!!!!

I hope this helps everyone to look at themselves!!!
