Expelled and left behind
a new way for yourself to find.
In surrounding darkness intertwined,
bewildered, unclear in mind,
fumbling your way forward like a person blind.
Disorientated and confused
pre-existing meaning and purpose disused,
new definition sought to be infused.
Pressure of internal stress
light bursts through, vision coalesce.
Clarity of perception, understanding repossessed.
Pathway ascertained, direction reassessed.
