I love this poem!

Autobiography in Five Short Chapters by Portia Nelson 
“There’s a Hole in My Sidewalk” 

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 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 this same place. 
But it isn’t my fault. 
It 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 . . . 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.

The End
