People should be Islands

The only way to live is alone.

In this world, the happy one,

The happy person,

Is surrounded by oceans.

The happy one has no mirrors.

There are no crowds, no people, no faces.

There is only you, few trees and the ocean.

 

By yourself there is no death.

Only you die.

By yourself there is no ridicule.

Only you judge.

By yourself there is no borrowing.

Only you eat.

By yourself there is no killing.

Only you live.

 

Together people live in poverty.

People live in wealth.

But the arms don’t cross,

The arms fold in their togetherness.

Together people are destroyed.

People are built.

Forming a crumbled up home,

With diamond bricks and mud corners.

Together people are betrayed.

People are protected.

You will see one,

Before you see the other.

 

If you stay too long child,

You will soon cry.

You cry out to God.

‘I cannot take the world’

Am frightened of it.

Lord, what happened?

Heaven must be real.

because this world is lost.

 

People are islands.

People can be happy alone.

There is no more peace in the world

Its better to be alone.
