Even/ Through the darkest phase.

From a book called Geography. Quoted from The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying.

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

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

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

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

I walk down another street

Yeah, the way I see it is that there have got to be new mistakes to make; why bother making the same ones over and over again?

hehehe .. the way i see it is:

THE ROAD TO WISDOM?
Well, it's plain
and simple to express.
Err and err and err again,
but less and less and less.

She did come today...to ask for a favour as usual. I couldn't ask her to get lost outright. But I did show her the door politely!

I like your blogs. I am a student from India.
