AUTOBIOGRAPHY IN FIVE SHORT CHAPTERS

 

Chapter One

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.

 

Chapter Two

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 can't believe I am in the same place
but, it isn't my fault.
It still takes a long time to get out.

Chapter Three

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

Chapter Four

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

Chapter Five

I walk down another street.

DIMINISHED

 

Diminished.

You say things to make me small,   

but I am not small.

I am not small.

 

You say things to make me forget my strength,

but I am not weak.

I am not weak.

 

You say things to make me question my certainty,

but I am certain.

I am certain.

 

You say things because you fear  being

small,

weak,

and uncertain.

 

I am choosing to stand tall,

to be strong,

and to carry myself with certainty.

 

I am choosing to reassert my confidence.

 

Your ability to make me small is

diminished.

 

 


 

 

OH, THE PLACES YOU'LL GO!

 

You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself
any direction you choose.

You're on your own.
And you know what you know.
And YOU are the one who'll decide
where to go.

 

I'm sorry to say so
But, sadly it's true
That bang-ups and hang-ups
Can happen to you.

On an on you will hike,
And I know you’ll hike far
and face up to your problems
whatever they are.

Step with care
and great tact
And remember that Life’s a great
balancing act.

Will you succeed? Yes you will indeed!
(98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.)
