Relapse

I cannot help  

reverting back

to my past mistakes.



I am always

backsliding,

falling on my face

again and again.  



Why can’t resist

these forces  

that keep me down?



Do I enjoy being

miserable?



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.
