Failing To Understand

I cannot understand many things. A cloud around my mind confuses my senses and even what I know baffles me.  A sharp clear voice will call out the way and seek to talk sense. But things are not always as they appear and I wait upon the truth, waiting in vain.

A small light shines in one direction and then another and then many more. To follow whom confuses all around,  I stand around hopeless bound to do no more than fail to understand.
