Take pride that even thought the rest of the world may disagree, you stil believe it to be a beautiful place.

I like to trace lines on maps,
and think that maybe my finger will move over someone
doing the same.
Someone wishing that they could escape the confines of normalcy,
and the bonds of mediocrity,
just like me.
Maybe if I slide down the longitudes
and glide through latitudes,
I can find someone hoping for liberation.
Wanting to tear off that which molds them to the group.
That which chokes them out of what is them.
Maybe everyone does that.
Maybe everyone traces the lines on maps.

I sat down at my computer, and found that my little brother had changed our desktop to a picture of the globe, one of the really scholastic maps that you'd see in a seventh grade geography textbook. Without knowing what I was doing, I pulled up Word and this spilled out.
