Map: He and I

he and I, we don't get along.
He's so confusing with those twists
and turns, signs and symbols. Why
can't he just SAY what he means?!
Maps make me feel stupid and
alone. They make me feel lost
in my own backyard.
I can't draw a map.
I can't follow a map. I won't follow their rules.
I believe in my own adventures.
no structures, No rules.
I make my own North.
Maps don't show beautiful trees
or blue skies or feel cool breezes.
Maps make you forget that
there's so much to see between "A" and "B."
