Island

No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent.

-John Donne.

Not every man is an island,
Some befriend their isolation.
Society on the one hand,
And conscience on the other.

Not every man is an island,
Choices have to be made.
That day these green lands,
You must leave & set sail.

Not every man is an island,
Some live the path they take.
For now, alone they stand,
With their waters at stake.

No man is an island forever,
One day their loneliness ruptures.
As prescribed by laws of nature,
They give, they take and remember.

-Nameera.
