I was that which others did not want to be
I went where others failed 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 stinging Cold of Fear
And enjoyed the sweet taste of a moments love
I have cried, pained and hoped... But most of all,
I have lived times others would say were best forgotten
At least someday I will be able to say that I was Proud
Of what I was....and always will be....
