Dante's Midlife Crisis

In the middle of the journey of our life,
I came to myself within a dark wood
Where the straight way was lost.
Ah, how hard it is to tell of that wood,
Savage and harsh and dense --
The thought of which renews my fear!
So bitter is it that death is hardly more.
- Dante "Inferno"
