There's A Hole in My Sidewalk

1.
I walk down the street.
There's a deep hole in the side walk.
I fall in.
I am lost.... I am hopeless.
It isn't my fault.
It takes forever to find a way out.

2.
I walk down the same street.
There's a deep hole in the side walk.
I pretend I don't see it.
I fall in again.
I can't believe I am in the same place.
But, it isn't my fault.
It still takes a long time to get out.

3.
I walk down the same street.
There's a deep hole in the side walk.
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.

4.
I walk down the same street.
There's a deep hole in the side walk.
I walk around it.

5.
I walk down another street.
