Day 1

my mind was hungry

so i tried feeding her books.

the restlessness was relentless but

i stayed, focusing my attention

on stillness instead.

 

the breaking of the fast is natural,

an expected reward for pushing my

self expectations.

i am greater than i thought.

 

one thing i noticed,

i’m not as indulgent.

patient, i accept what

i need

not much else…

warm, i am comforted

by a piece of peaceful mind.
