Learning To Do Better

Learning to Do Better
I walk down the street.
There is a hole.
I don’t see it.
I fall in.

It isn’t my fault.
It takes a very long time to get out.
I walk down the same street.
There is still a deep hole.
I pretend not to see it.
I fall in.

I pretend it’s still not my fault.
It takes a long time to get out.
I walk down the same street.
There is still the same deep hole.
I see it.
I fall in anyway.

It’s a habit.
I get out quicker this time.
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole.
I see it.
I walk around it.

I don’t fall in.
I walk down a different street.
