For myself
I must learn for myself
Not from what someone else 
Has said or done

And so I live my life
From day to day
While feeling my way
Just like a child
For myself
I must learn for myself

The future that some else
May say will come
May never be 
What destiny holds for me
Let me see
For myself!
