"I Am a Rock" by Paul Simon, how is the character feeling i the song? Why does he describe himself as "I am a rock, I am an island"?

Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Think like a rock and like an island! An island is all alone (as the lyrics say), and a rock could be too. An island is isolated. A rock is solid (and he doesn't need love, friendship, also in the lyrics.) Look at the last 2 lines:

And a rock feels no pain;
And an island never cries.
