FLASH!

Autobiography In Five Short Chapters
CHAPTER I
“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 me forever to find a way out.
CHAPTER II
I walk down the same street.
         There is 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 mu fault.
It still takes a long time to get out.
CHAPTER III
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the side walk.
I see it there.
I still fall in…it’s a habit…but,
my eyes are open.
I know where I am.
It is my fault.
I get out immediately.
CHAPTER IV
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I walk around it.
CHAPTER V
I WALK DOWN ANOTHER STREET.
