when the ancients sought direction

and their maps were drafted out
they inked "here, there be dragons"
in the areas of doubt
.
i don't believe those sailors
who had nerve to sail the sea
had ever seen a dragon
out in their periphery
.
twas just imagination
and the fear of the unknown
and into their cartography
these images were sewn
.
the mind is like map, it's said
with many seas and isles
and lifetimes are a journey
that will cover many miles
.
there's places in our psyche
that we might just fear to tread
where non-existent creatures
may be lurking in our head
.
we think, "here, there be dragons"
and it fills us full of fear
but if we were to face them
they would simply disappear
.
so have a little courage
do not fall into the trap
of forging needless dragons
in your mind's perplexing map
