7/12/13 The Historian

And with your atlas you travelled the world
A map for every map
Rounded the globe as if you spun it
Changed location as you saw fit
Hoped to out do every cartographer
you followed, selfishly reinking
Mapping over, changing borders
Making the world as you saw fit
A revolutionary

An explorer who makes his own paths
The world in your eyes
Is the only one you care to see
A mountain is not a mountain
until you scaled it
A ocean not water
until you crossed it
You make the world exist
History is not real
Unless you wrote it
