what is earth? (just another planet)

what is five thousand to a world of billions?
what are friends to a heart of stone?
what is earth but just another planet?
what pierces these emotions in my bones?

internet injections lull my arms
social media medicine causes me harm

the antidote is not a numerical value, i know
so why do followers aid my growth?

i am ivy climbing cobblestone
i am tired of being green
and alone

but as i said-
what is earth 
what are my bones
what is my heart
if not sculptured stone?
