NO MAN IS AN ISLAND

NO MAN IS AN ISLAND "I don't need anyone" I once heard a young man say My heart cried out to him To tell him, nay, nay, nay. For we all need someone We can talk to, to guide us on our way Someone who understands us And can keep us from the fray. Someone who will counsel us And lead us by the hand When we don't know where we're headed In this vast, ungracious land. We need that special someone Who is always there to offer love And a hand to ease the burden When we're ready to give up. No man is an island In this life of ups and downs There's a sea of friends around us - If we'd only look around. © ELR 2013

    Though, I can confidently say that I don't NEED somebody to define my life. I certainly WANT people in my life to define my heart further than I already have. This was a strong writing. Wonderfully done.
