The Pit

Day 1: I Walk down a road, fall into pit, it's dark and frightening, I scream, I yell, I cry, I kick, I scratch, I claw, I climb and eventually find my way out… I look back at the hole and damn it. and continue on… Day 2: I Walk down the same road, fall into the same pit, it's dark and frightening but familiar, I scream, I yell, I cry, I kick, I scratch, I claw, I climb BUT not as long as the first time and find my way out… I look back at the hole and damn it…, but not quite as energetic… and continue on… Day 3: I Walk down the same road, notice the hole, try to avoid it, BUT fall into the same pit anyway, it's dark and annoying but familiar, I scream, I yell, I cry, but mostly out of frustration, I kick, I scratch, I claw out of righteousness, I climb BUT am becoming familiar with the foot and hand holds, and though there is effort, I climb out with great focus and find my way out… I look back at the hole and damn MYSELF…, and continue on… Day 4: I Walk down the same road, notice the hole, try to walk completely around it, BUT can't take my eyes off it and fall into the same pit anyway, it's dark, but my eyes adjust very quickly, I mumble under my breath mostly out of self annoyance and the stupidity of the world, I climb AND am QUITE familiar with the foot and hand holds, and with only minimal effort, I climb fairly quickly and find my way out… I look back at the hole and shrug my shoulders…, and continue on… Day 5: I Walk down the same road, notice the hole, walk completely around it, BUT turn around and peer down it fascinated and fall into the pit anyway, it's dark, but this is not an issue, my eyes don't even need to adjust to start my ascent, I pontificate loudly to myself and any passer by, how you can't avoid these pits, it's just the way it is, I quickly climb out, with little effort and find my way out… I glance back at the hole and raise one eyebrow…, and continue on… Day 6: I Walk down the same road, aim right for the hole, JUMP into it, it's dark and comfortable, I muse at the dirt and rock and things in the pit that have fallen in and take my time, I leisurely start to leave, I have nothing to say, I just climb out, with expert speed and KNOW my way out… I continue on without looking back…, and continue on… Day 7: I CHOOSE A DIFFERENT ROAD!
