    We had a group with a locum a few weeks back and she told us this poem. For some reason I got thinking about it today and it really does relate to us, to lapses and to negative thinking. Just thought I'd share it...





    Chapter I

    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 II

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

    Chapter III

    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 IV

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

    Chapter V

    I walk down another street

    It is a very thought provoking poem, however, I think you will hear that about 600 times before you finish LL, LOL.

    Just remember though, all streets have holes, if you go down a different street it will have new holes you have to learn to deal with.
