    Day 1 wasn't sure i would make it
    Day 2 holdin' my stomach all day
    not quite sure I could take it
    day 3 a little stronger
    still thinkin bout food though
    almost had me on all fours, droolin'
    lookin' like Cujo
    Day 4 party at my job
    enough food too take your breathe away
    I told them leave the water on my desk
    but take the rest away
    Day 5 much stronger, but no help from co-workers
    they reminiscin' on all the food from yesterday
    Day 6 feelin' good
    asked a ? to the man in the mirror
    he said he would respond in 24 days
    that way I would understand the answer a little mo clearer
    Day 7 on the outside
    givin the appearance like their ain't nuttin' too it
    but only if my people's knew
    on the inside I'm really goin' thru it
    Day 8 asked my Destee.com fam to fast for a day with me
    told 'em all they have to do is put their mind too it
    Day 9 tears in my eyes
    as I saw how many had already signed to it
    Day 10 no more hunger pains
    so glad the fam is wit' me
    Day 11 the First annual Fast, most of us in chat for 12 hours
    Don't need nuthin' else to convince me
    we all made it thru wit' ease
    almost like there was nuthin' too it
    they thanked me for helpin them
    but it was really them that helped me go thru it
    Day 12 feelin' like there's nothing too it
    I don't even get hungry no more
    Even found myself making peace
    with those hungry for war
    Day 13 6 pounds lighter
    feelin' like a championship fighter
    everything's alright
    casue the mind & body got a little tighter
    Day 14 encouragin' others
    buildin', speakin' and teachin
    those around me eating food
    seem to be the only one's being weakened
    Day 15 (today) I said I'll stop boring people with the topic
    cause they don't seem to be interested in cleaning the top of their dome
    and here I find myself speakin' about it again
    with this poem off of the top of the dome..........

    pt. 2 (days 16-30)

    - see ya Nov. 4th family..................

    PEACE

    Wow... you are a great example of what one can do when they put their sprit, soul & mind into it.

    As you continue to draw on your inner strength you will see that each day was well spent.

    The poem of course was right on the money, as per your usual. As far as the fasting is concerned, wow, hats off to you!!! I had no idea you were fasting for days and just wanted some of us to join in for a day with you. I don't feel that fasting for that mere day was that much now, lol, compared to what you're doing. I'm sure you'll make it to day 30 brotha.

    Ah yes
    much love to you info-moetry during this holy month
    It is wonderful how you place in a poem
    The period felt during the fasting
    and the will power thats needed
    to cleanse the body
    and sooth the soul
    it is indeed a spiritually awakening time.
    Much love to you

    Peace Unto You
