wednesday's words of wisdom

from there's a hole in my sidewalk by portia nelson

chapter 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.

chapter 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'm in the same place.
but it isn't my fault.
it still takes a long time to get out.


chapter 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.

chapter 4:

i walk down the same street.
there is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
i walk around it.

chapter 5:

i walk down a different street.
