Autobiography in 5 Chapters

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 dont see it.
I fall in again.
I cant 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....its 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.

By Portia Nelson

Its a life truth this above - the street with the deep hole represents each of our problems and obstacles that we face while living our lives, and the journey out of the deep hole on the street represents our journey to overcome our problems and pass the obstacles in our way.
