There’s a Hole in My Sidewalk by Portia Nelson

Chapter One
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.

Chapter Two
I walk down the street.There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I pretend I dont see it. I fall in again.
I can’t believe I am in this same place. But, it isn’t my fault.
I still takes a long time to get out.

Chapter Three
I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I see it there. I still fall in…it’s a habit…but, my eyes are open
I know where I am. It is my fault.
I get out immediately.

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

Chapter Five
I walk down another street.
