No Man is an Island

 

I stand alone
with the sky above and
the ground beneath
I want to reach the sky
but the ground holds me strong
wonder how I came to be here
alone
the breeze flutters my leaves
but I fear the strong wind
from the river
threatens to uproot me
there is no one to defend me
’cause I stand alone
