Thusly I am a man, for all whom to see
I ask for no pity, I ask for no warm hearts
Only that I be understood and understood alone
Never will you know my name
for to know that would show my shame
Not once will you see my face
Not until I have another in place
Instead you will hear my words, mock them as you will
But as you would heed my tales, my truths will remain unseen
Because I am a man, regardless of any disposition
And that means to know my truth, would also be to know my heart
And nobody but those who see with untainted eyes
Will ever hope to catch a glimpse of one thump.
Because I am a man, only I will know me.
