Poetry Wednesday #3 - No man is an island

Week 3 of Poetry Wednesday falls right in the middle of the EPIC Cause It’s My Birthday campaign and so I wanted to share a favorite poet of mine, John Donne and a poem that illustrates how connected we all are. It’s called No Man Is An Island. The title was turned into a song by Joan Baez and covered many times, a version I particularly like is below.

We are all in this together. It’s too late to think it’s too late. It’s too late to not truly care what happens to the next generation. It’s up to us, it’s up to you and me. I hope you’ll join me in the fight to do better and to be better. You can join today by making a donation to the #fightmalaria campaign I’m in the middle of. Donate HERE.
