Verse One!

Starting a fresh “poetic attempt”… this is as far as I’ve got so far!

 

“No man” they say, “is an island”

Though we’re fooled to thinking so

Retreat in shore and raise the bridge

Stand alone as a heritage

Of the pains of the past

Reaching into today

Building defences

To keep waves of love at bay
