    There's no path for me to walk on to lead me to

    the right way. I cannot seem to find the person I once was. This person I am now has gotten so lost. I've made turns, cut through the alleys. Yet I end up coming back to them. Where am I? WHO am I? Do I have anything to come back to? There's no GPS to lead me to the correct...
