I'll write a poem every day, might be tiny but it'll be complete.


Halfway through the challenge, halfway through the days

walking partway down a road that we started at a run

already getting weary as that initial adrenalin fades

does it feel like halfway through a sandwich with the lesser half to come?


Halfway satiated, halfway challenge met

convinced the daily effort's been absorbed into one's brain

as a wonderfully worthy bit of self-control, a bet

with no one but ourselves – and it's not yet gone down the drain.


So hurrah all you 100 Dayers, give yourselves a massive cheer

to get so far, conceive, dream up, explore, leap and explain

then to persist, push through, grit teeth, and even to drink the 50th beer

now our journey's goal boils down to this: do the whole thing over again.

Day 50 Day 50
