Maps

Above all,
we seek purpose,
direction and affirmation,
seeking guidance from the signs
along the way,
mistrusting of those trying
to place us on the right path.
Most often we ignore
the simplest of truths:
even the best of maps
are useless
when the destination is unclear.

Some of what I write is true, some is fiction; most is merely possibility.
