As you move upstream

upbeat about your elevation

shedding things, emotions, people

to streamline your ascent

I am an inconspicuous blip

in the flotsam trailing in your wake

disparaged and discarded disdainfully

but I will not let this unravel me

as you flirt with success

I make a pact with failure

to knit a better, stronger me

out of this rejection.
