The poem illustrates one man’s honesty towards himself.
I have to live with myself, and so,
I want to be fit for myself to know,
I want to be able, as days go by,
Always to look myself straight in the eye:
I don’t want to stand, with the setting sun,
And hate myself for things I’ve done. (lines 28-33)
Guest illustrates how self-respect is a necessity for life.
Quoting from the novel:
Holden Caufield admits that he is a “terrific liar” (11). He fails at being honest not only with others, but with himself.
