[ Classic Corner ] Stranded

 
 
After a childhood spent  
ailing  
wailing  
railing  

She got busy living life  
delighting  
writing
sailing  
 
When being shipwrecked  
on a god forsaken rock  
one must make due with what  
the Universe gives you  
 
but never settle for less;  
there's always an endless supply    
of abandonment's emptiness  
 
issuing forth as if fountains  
from us in volcanic spillings  
of mountainous mole hillings  
titanic; ships passing by ignoring  
 
your imploring, erupting tantrums  
spewing forth basalt froth and  
clouds of ashen declarations  
 
No man or woman is an island  
 
However, you could be a native  
 
or continue stranding yourself on  
one of your own making
