I cannot help  

reverting back

to my past mistakes.

I am always


falling on my face

again and again.  

Why can’t resist

these forces  

that keep me down?

Do I enjoy being


Or am I just not strong

enough to fight him

on my own?  

I cannot face recovery

without a helping hand.  

I cannot stay sober

if not for his forgiveness

repeating itself.
