A little about me - William Porto

Live: Upper West Side / Manhattan


Who am I?
Can I conceal myself for evermore?
Pretend I'm not the man I was before?
And must my name until I die
Be no more than an alibi?
Must I lie?
How can I ever face my fellow men?
How can I ever face myself again?
                     - Les Miserables
