I ask for very little and I’ll take even less.
I will offer you nothing that is not my best.
I shall not speak simply to hear my own voice,
But I’ll listen to you, not through obligation but through choice.
Mistakes I’ve made a plenty and still there are more to come.
I’ve lived a varied life and have regrets over some things I’ve done.
Choices I’ve made have been wrong at times
Consequences have penalties, I have underpaid some fines!
I paint no flowery picture of what I am,
I am nothing if I’m not a man!
