give back, not up

Abstain forty days:
alcohol, sugar, cussing
guilty pleasures, too.

Pick your deadly sin:
Nine thousand six hundred hour
detox for the soul.

Learn to sustain faith.
Moderate your suffering.
This modern thinking:

hard rules to follow
when progress, technology
want us to be “free”;

where virtual rules,
instant gratification
sets a precedent.

Open your heart
Think beyond the holy book.
Enter rebellion

Change it up, really.
Give til there’s nothing to give,
give back, look forward.
