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.
