i have left my confusion to a cynical world
dejé mis dudas en manos de un mundo egoísta


Explanation:
Lo de "dudas" fue por buscarle un tono más poético al texto, pero perfectamente podrías usar "confusión", tal como en inglés.

Ese "leave to" corresponde al siguiente uso de "leave": "Put into the care or protection of someone; "He left the decision to his deputy"; "leave your child the nurse's care".

En lo que no encuentro mayor sustento que mi propio conocimiento del inglés es en la traducción de "cynical" como "egoísta", no como "cínico", que me parece un calco, al menos en tu texto.

Suerte, ALEJANDRA.

I detect a sense of "bequeathed" here. You don't have to die in order to bequeath something, merely to be moving on. And in this case, confusion properly belongs to the cynical and thus is left to them.
