Autobiography In Five Short Chapters

1.
I walk down the street.
There is a deep hole 
in the sidewalk.
I fall in.
I am lost....I am helpless.
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.
