A Touch of Dante

When I had reached the middle of life's journey,
I came to myself in a dark wood with the straight path gone missing.
Ah, how painful a thing it is to tell you what that was like, 
that wild, rough and impenetrable wood,
the very thought of which revives my fear!

- From The Inferno

I hear you.

Yes, the next stage of life is going to be unknown or at least a bundle of broken paths.

I suspect that is why reading Dante is always beneficial.
