Something To Think About

AUTOBIOGRAPHY IN FIVE SHORT CHAPTERS
by Portia Nelson

CHAPTER 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.

CHAPTER II
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.

CHAPTER 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.

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

CHAPTER V
I walk down another street.

THE END
Today take another street!
