Autobiography in 5 short chapters

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

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 cant believe I am in the same place
But, it isn’t my fault
It still takes a long time to get out

III

I walk down the same street
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk
I see it 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

IV

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

V

I walk down another street
