Orienteering One’s Way Though Life

Using compass and map
he learned to orienteer.
He learned magnetic from true
so to the destination, he could steer.

However, without a map
he couldn’t orienteer.
He was stuck without true;
the destination, he could only come near.

And so life is like a life lived without a map.
Through life, he couldn’t orienteer.
He is pulled by desire but not necessarily what is true;
Mostly, he misses the mark but does come near.

However, with both compass and map,
he has the fundamentals to orienteer;
Unlike with a failed GPS, he can follow the true.
Sometimes technology leaves him lost with just fear.

And so it is best to learn the fundamentals
to follow that which is true
instead of being lost again in the forest
experiencing deja vu.
