Stigma

I’m pulled backwards,
will I continue to berate
myself for making a mistake?
For allowing the stake
to fall in the storm.
I should have known better!
I’m an idiot! A failure!
Or do I pick it up,
drive the stake back into
the mud.
Yes I relapsed,
yes I’m not okay,
yes I shouldn’t
have done what I did,
yes there are repercussions,
but do I set anchor here
or look ahead,
if you’re going through hell
keep going,
like an arrowhead.
