The dangers are:
sure death - note: it isn't said to be imminent death, just sure death.
As is commonly known, nothing is sure but death and taxes.
So sure death lies on all the paths.
Why add a beast to that?

Frightened near half out my wit
I chose a log to think and sit
Wandered aimless into a wood
I got lost, perhaps for good
South the ravenous wolf I hear
And west the lion’s roar is near
Northward lies an angry bear
And east sure death is what I fear
North or South, East or West
Which way to travel is the best?

To sit and think. ( to gather myself and regain my wits), gotta get alone at times like this (thus the aimlessness),
I then realized that I was lost and perhaps that was good, for what I feared ( though perhaps only a fantom ) now could not find me either, ((I've never really been lost, except when someone else couldn't find me )) and that the object of fear was not a threat as described later in my diary and "thought of sure death" I can imagine a lot of real things that could bring upon the "thought of sure death", most of them involve some breaking of principle of moral code or departure from a well
established concept of "reality" that I would hold dear to me even as to life itself. I couldn't have been lost (as stated )
since I knew the four directions, which could be difficult to determine in a forrest where bears, wolfs and lions may inhabit,
thence the "gotten lost" was and is a good thing when you want to lose something (some thoght), (( several times I've had the opportunity to take the advice, "Go..get lost", applying wisdom or advice when I had no wit "out of my wits", surely
I was "stumped" (thus a bump on a log). Finally upon wakening from my witless state, "real" potential dangers entered my witless state and taking notice, had a choice, "return to the scource and cause of panic, after gathering myself, realizing actual dangers of this world are truly more dangerous than a temporary displacement of conceptual thought. Of course one
does not abandon all priorities having returned to ones "wits" and directly returned to the situation from whence I'd been so
blindly driven (don't hold me to that point) from. ie. my fomer self. (suscinct) <spell check> enough??????? RSVP!!!!
