American singer and actress, Portia Nelson (1920 – 2001), wrote this wonderful short poem in the 1970’s titled, “Autobiography in Five Short Chapters.”

It goes like this:

Chapter 1

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 me forever to find a way out.
