we all have them-
conscious or not-
forming the foundation
we build a life.
there is a sense of security
a perception of control and order,
a bit of a path seen and set.
when expectations come crumbling down-
existential crisis settles within.
we no longer see the Point, let alone the road!
disoriented and ego-bruised,
we reel –
must establish new, different, and improved expectations
to become tethered again – or so we like to believe.
