Portia Nelson poem


I’d like to read a poem to start our
journey together by the late author and poet Portia Nelson it’s called
autobiography in five short chapters anybody ever hear this before some of
you have chapter one I walked down the street there is a deep hole in the
sidewalk I fall in I’m lost I’m helpless it’s not my fault it takes
me forever to find a way out take a deep breath let it go
that’s just chapter one we’re going five chapters chapter two autobiography in
five short chapters I walk down the same street and guess what there’s a deep
hole in the sidewalk I pretend I don’t see it I fallen again I can’t believe
I’m in the same place it’s still not my fault it still takes a long time to get
out take a deep breath let it go happiness is found along the way not at
the end of the journey chapter three guess what I walk down the same street
and there’s a deep hole in the sidewalk I see it’s there I still fall in it’s a
habit but my eyes are open I know where I am I
take responsibility it is my fault I get out immediately
take a deep breath let it go chapter four I walked down the same
street there is a deep hole in the sidewalk I walk around it
chapter five the Heal Kongress I walk down another street whew welcome
