During a sharing session that I’ve attended during last Saturday, someone shared this very inspiring poem written by Portia Nelson.

Since it is such an inspiring and enlightening poem, I would love to take this opportunity to share with all you lovely souls out there who have been with us in this post after our recent long silence:

Autobiography In Five Short Chapters

Portia Nelson

*****

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 forever to find a way out.

*****

Chapter 2

I walk down the same street.

There is a deep hole in the side walk.

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 3

I walk down the same street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.

I see it is there.

I fall in…it’s a habit…but my eyes are open.

I know where I am.

It is my fault.

I get out immediately.

*****

Chapter 4

I walk down the same street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.

I walk around it.

*****

Chapter 5

I walk down a different street.

Ahhh…those darn deep holes in our life…do they sound like a familiar place to you?

I’ve fallen, many times before, without knowing

I’ve fallen, many more times before, knowing very clearly that I would need to get out via the hard way

Those were done during my younger days. thinking that I still have many days ahead to waste

At this stage of my life

I might need to fall into them a few more times, without knowing

But I need to get rid of this bad habit, so that I can walk around them with my head held high

For getting rid of this bad habit may make me wiser than before

Wise enough to help myself discover many more streets to walk down

Before ending this post, this is a soundtrack from the movie “Evita” (one of the few movies that I had watched in cinemas) to share with you lovely soul out there.

I simply love the tune of this song and though the lyrics sounded really sad, it is also very enlightening as well.

May you lovely souls enjoy the poem and song that we’ve shared in this post.

Have a lovely Monday and a great week ahead!

Till then,

Cheers & TTFN~ 😀
