'No man is an island' -- but I am an island: am I no man?
Not only an island -- but an island of desert: am I cursed?
Or: has Heaven a Hand on this experience?
Ah, a flicker of understanding now I see: It is You, O God, Who author this experience of my soul!
But my mind is yet clouded as to grasp the Divine Reason behind all this.
In time, I know, will I fully understand.
