no man is one

nor an island
they say

but a rock
is no man either

I learned this

not every stone
hides a diamond
at it's core

and nor all rock
is sprung
from the same
golden ore

a rock
draws no breath

and even those few
that hides
what we seek

will not let it
shine through

no man is a rock

they all bleed
just like me

but somebody

tell me why
they should be
