    Nobody's An Island

    I've heard that saying time and time again. It's supposed to be a metaphor for someone to ask for help. I took it a different way. I'm not sure where I learned what it meant to be a hypocrite, but I knew I didn't want to be one. I also wanted to know what the **** I was talking...
