Why not me?

Oh some may call it a curse
A life like mine
But others
A blessing
It certainly a lonely life
But a fulfilling one at best
It's my cross to bare
And I bare it gladly
Someone has to take a stand against evil
Why should it not be me?
Why should I stand by while
others ignore it?
Ignoring the killing
evil leaves behind in it's path
while they walk the streets.
Someone must stop it
Why should it not be me?
Me who lives alone,
me who fights back.
Me who will stand against evil.
Why should it not be me?
