Lost.
Where am I?
There are tracks that mostly go around my path,
but some go straight through.
Will the next one crush me?
I am far from home
far from those like me,
far from where I had purpose,
far from where I belong.

How I got here, I do not know.
Perhaps abandoned. Perhaps pushed. Misplaced.

Or is it
That I am not lost at all
But instead outside my comfort zone
Still capable of carrying
Forced to see beyond the tracks all around me
Asked to see the world in a new light
Invited to a journey I never imagined
and a life beyond my past experiences.
