Another way: Have first part be first person diatribe
2nd Part is why or where this !st person storyline is heading or resolving
3rd Part is a metaphor laced with 1 and 2 connatations
And the 4 is a flow to the break or change.
"I was looking the other way but ahead just the same"
"Feeling like where I was, could be the end of the game"
"But it was all on the line, and it was crossed and you were brave"
"Taking me to a new place , I didn't find until that day"
I just wrote that for example, but I use a handheld recorder to try and capture something special, even if just for a part of one line. Then I scrap the rest and build on that little piece. Happy writing
