My entire life was structured

around a belief system

Until the day I'm in a foreign land

Where familiar faces and cultures

No longer clenched me to

My identity.

Didn't know where to go

How to live

I'm a lonely alien here

I'm lost

Cultural shock they warned me.

I had to start from scratch

To recreate myself

The meanings of life

I held on from my parents

I let go.

From Stoicism

To Existentialism

I tried to comprehend our existence

Only to a realization

That there is no meaning

Life is absurd.
