When what has been the most important 
Without warning has simply fallen away  
As if its own life- was abruptly extinguished
Definitions of all that still exist- changed  
Home itself, becomes very unrecognizable 
Understanding of your own image, altered 
Life suddenly feels unwantedly perplexing
All the rules of life seem to have dissipated 
Your nights and days become a forced journey
Storms you never heard of, very threatening  
Within foreign skies that are quickly fleeting
Even survival feels taunting and questionable   
Blindly seeking, stumbling, in cosmic drifting 
From one cold strange star to unknown others
As you spiral throughout a new dark universe 
Hoping to be pulled in orbit of a new … North Star
