Caught in thickets of confusion,

Stranded by plain plaintiveness,

Buoyed by unexpected excitement,

Swamped by unexplained melancholy,

Bumbling along life’s uncharted path,

Where more unknowns steer than knowns,

Where script differs every day,

Where somewhere hourglass of time ticks,

It’s a bumpy, bumper ride.

44 words.
