Let me show you what i see,
each time I put a verse to rhyme,
all that i feel, and think and do,
is written here, safe for all time.
Let me take you to the edge,
right to the end of every line,
a place where pain and pleasure meet,
a place where thoughts and dreams combine.
Let me build a world for you,
from all that I have felt and done,
my secret wants, my deadly sins,
the web of truth and lies unspun.
Let me tell you who i am,
the boy i was, the man i’ll be,
the truth is here, no lie or sham,
within these words you will find me.
