Journey of life

Journeys have never evoked a feeling of dread in me.

But this time the idea of being abandoned in an unfamiliar world is the central fear I am trying to deal with;

As I know for sure that I will not travel alone rather my entire way of life will accompany me and I fear that it may have troubles fitting into the prevailing spaces I'll be offered.

(P.S. These days I am reading the book called “my pious lady’ by Santosh Desai. The book is a story about changing middle class urban India. In one of the chapters the author has mentioned about traveling and Indian journeys. Though the words written in the above piece are more or less similar to what Desai has written but I have changed the context by making it my own story)
