Zelda's Inferno exercise: "breathe. relax. accept."

Zelda's Inferno exercise: write a poem from the following word list, based on the word "exercise":

stretch "feel the burn" pain breathe sweat muscles mountains water run strain jockstrap "sports bra" gym yoga "downward dog" scream fish endurance hospital relax

breathe
relax
scream, if you must, but then

breathe
relax
again
breathe
relax the shoulders, no need to hold them up and tense
breathe
relax the chest, no need to hold it tight
breathe
relax the neck, no need to hold it forward, let the head sit above the spine
breathe

mountains of doubt appear.
ok. breathe. relax. accept.
muscles of the legs complain of the strain.
ok. breathe. relax. accept.
boredom. distraction. desire.
ok. breathe. relax. accept.
strange voices.
ok. breathe. relax. accept.
again, boredom. distraction. desire.
ok. breathe. relax. accept.
angelic visions.
ok. breathe. relax. accept.
demonic threats.
ok. breathe. relax. accept.
anger. fear. regret.
ok. breathe. relax. accept.
confusion. heartache. worry.
ok. breathe. relax. accept.
triumph. failure.
ok. breathe. relax. accept.

there is no other medicine.
