The Island Of Man - Poem by Roilynn brown

If no man is an island, he must rely on something un-contained,
un-limited and sufficient for his needs.

An island exist contained, limited and un-sufficient of itself.

If no man is an island, he is connected to something greater,
that understands, the attributes of substance, realizing,
what he was, is, and will be.

An island exist with no extension of itself, no purpose of being.

If no man is an island, he is extended to the greatness of knowledge,
of other islands of man, recognizing,
what he was, is, and will be.

An island exist not as a whole, but a contribution to it.

If no man is an island, he give life a purpose of being,
and wisdom to other islands of man,
who they were, are, and will be

If no man is an island, something greater than an insular existence is what he relies on.
Understanding that he is never alone.
Knowledge that unites him consciously to surrounding islands.
Needs that are sufficed, attributes that are empowered,
with the wisdom of,
who he was, is, and will be.

Therefore no man is an island.
