Romans 14:7 and the Poem: “No Man is an Island”

For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself.

Romans 14:7

No Man is an Island

No man is an island entire of itself;
every man is a piece of the continent,
a part of the main;

If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less,
as well as if a promontory were,
as well as any manner of thy friends
or of thine own were;

any man’s death diminishes me,
because I am involved in mankind.
And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls;
it tolls for thee.

As per Paul’s instruction in Romans, we stand connected,
Not fragmented, but as one.
Though individual, our fates intertwine,
In this shared journey, our destinies align.

When one faces decline, we all bear the weight,
Collective strength diminishes, unity’s state.
And as one soul rises,
We all partake in the triumph.

No man an island. We sail as one.
