the grind

i wake up wanting to do this,

compelled to show up with full preparedness

to plot, plan, practice,

burn, build, and bleed.

this is a grind that will cut you,

test you, stretch you, scar you,

and then wound you

in the same places again.

this grind will show you to yourself,

bring you devastating clarity,

and prove more and more

how heavy the armor is.
