Perhaps it's a highway,

With many burns and crashes?

A free open road,

Paved with grief and ashes?

I say it's a labyrinth.

Which no one can avoid.

A maze we have to start at birth,

But enter map devoid.

We are meant to bump,

Stray off the beaten track.

When we see our dead ends,

We stumble our way back.

Perhaps there's a certain route,

Our destinies and fate.

But we never truly know,

Until it's far too late.
