“I’m Not Anyone”

~ Shirley Bassey

“I am not yet born; O fill me/ With strength against those who would freeze my/ humanity, would dragoon me into a lethal automation,/ would make me a cog in a machine, a thing with/ one face, a thing, and against all those/ who would dissipate my entirety, would/ blow me like a thistle down hither and/ thither or hither and thither/ like water held in the/ hands would spill me./ Let them not make me a stone and let them not spill me/ Otherwise kill me.”

                                   Louis MacNeice
