No Man is an Island

To make your mark without determined aim
Attracting all that seek within this world
A beacon light which hath no need of flame
Steadfast upon the rocks of life unfurled
Such noble aspects one would wish for self
To stand alone as troubled waters stir
‘Midst crashing stocks and bonds of unearned wealth
Whilst all around doth clamour for their share
No Man in truth could rise above the waves
If thoughtfulness be tossed upon the seas
Forsaking all that’s good for wanton craves
Results in human kind upon their knees
Safe harbour doth diminish with desire
Eroding of ourselves in its entire
