The Ditch

I walk along a path

Beautiful countryside everywhere I look

But beside the path is a ditch

It seems my balance is not very good

Sometimes I fall into the ditch

The ditch is not comfortable

The ditch is not nice

And I wish I had not fallen into the ditch

The ditch is not easy to get out of

It is muddy & wet & deep

The fall hurts

It’s cold & it’s lonely

I don’t like the ditch
