No Headlights

Fine splinters cracked
Across the eggshell
Like a spider’s web
Struggled to emerge
Into the utopia of life
To hope and possibility
Vibrant dreams waiting
Adventurous path ahead
Anticipating the journey
Making sure not to cross
The painted centre line
Into oncoming traffic
Halfway through
Trucks heading my way
Drifting across lanes
Not sure of the right direction
Searching for future
The planned course lost
Now a fractured spirit
Blind to the dawn
Traveling in darkness
Unable to find the headlights
