I should say something

It’s what I do

What I’ve done

For a thousand days

I’d call it discipline

Except it doesn’t feel that way

I’d call it delight

Except I rarely feel anything

Like giddy

Anymore, it’s simply

What I do

It’s ritualized, a secular

Devotion

No orthodoxy yet,

Which tends to mean oppression

This was

Established out of freedom

As a means for physical recovery

I guess it’s working

I’m still here

Now so are you
