0166 I Walk Alone [25 January 1998]

I walk alone
Among giant buildings
That are the future
To which I belong not.

Why have I been chosen
To lead a life such as this?
I am not one who
Would enjoy life like that.

I am not one
Who would be controlled.
I am not a puppet
In any man’s hands.

So why choose me?
I am not
Easily submissive,
Or is that the reason?
