Autobiography in Five Short Chapters

-Deep-Hole

I. 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 me forever to find a way out.

II. I walk down the same street. There’s a deep hole in the sidewalk. I pretend I don’t see it. I fall again.
I can’t believe I’m in the same place. But, it isn’t my fault. It still takes a long time to get out.

III. 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.

IV. I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I walk around it.

V. I walk down another street.
