My Autobiography in Five Short Chapters


(author unknown)

  1. I walk down the street.
       There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.   
          I fall in.
             I am lost… I am hopeless. It isn’t my fault.
                It takes forever to find a way out.
  2. I walk down the same street.
       There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
           I pretend I don’t see it.
              I fall in again.
                 I can’t believe I  am in the same place.
                    But it isn’t my fault.
                       It still takes a long time to get out.
  3. I walk down the same street.
       There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
          I see it is there.
              I still fall in… it’s a habit.
                My eyes are open.
                   I know where I am.
                      It is my fault.
                        I get out immediately.
  4. I walk down the same street.
       There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
          I walk around it.
  5. I walk down another street
