“Autobiography in Five Short Chapters”
by Portia Nelson

Part 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 forever to find a way out.

Part 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’m in the same place,
but it isn’t my fault.
It still takes a long time to get out.

Part 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.

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

Part V
I walk down another street.
