Autobiography in five chapters..

Chapter 1:
I walk down the street
There is a big 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.

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, its 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 another street.
