Relapse

How did I get back here again

in this place

You can stop anytime you want to

You decide

You are the one who has to walk away

At any moment, the power is yours

To stop what you are doing, throw your hands down

And walk away.

You have this strength. You have done it before. Remember that time

You can do it again

But you do not. Not tonight

You cannot even look in the mirror.

But you will recover from this

like all the others

So pick your head back up, hold it high

You don't have to look in the mirror

yet

It's ok

Get some days under your belt

Keep moving forward, eyes on the ground

Do what you are supposed to be doing

And one day soon

You will be able to look yourself dead in the eye

Once again.
