Poetry - One Man.

November 17, 2017


One man for himself on this battle land,

Dizzy as you stand,

A one man band,

Are you lending me your hand,


Brave face,

They want you to fall from grace,

This life lesson you try your best to embrace,

Where is the finish to this race,


Ignorance is bliss,

What did I miss,

I am invisible so me you dismiss,

Laugh at me and hiss, 


As a zombie 🧟‍♀️ I walk,

Over me you talk,

Trying to find my voice to talk,

Continuing down the path I try to walk,


Day after day,

I manage to see it through in some way, 

My pain I cannot deal with in any way,

It is on constant replay,


By the rules you play,

From the move forward you never delay,

Oh not another day,

For things to unfold as if they are on replay,


Everyone else’s voices are heard and noted down,

Yet you are just faced with a frown,

Who is the odd ball in town,

Let’s not address her feelings or write them down,


My pain,

The endless rain,

In my face you can see the strain,

From crying out in anger and pain I restrain,


No end in sight,

I don’t see any light,

I live alone in the dark of the night,

People see me but pretend I am not within their sight, 


Radiating heat,

Burning hands and feet,

With kindness - everyone you greet,

Dizzy - you best sit down and take a seat,


You miss home dearly,

You try to be cheery,

You offer kindness to others sincerely,

Them not understanding any part of you clearly,


Questioned time after time,

Waiting for the clock to chime,

Finally a mealtime,

Though we get fed it is a silent awkward time,


How horrible it is to live in an alien land,

Tall you try to stand,

You are in sinking sand,

You body can’t take the demand,


You have a choice to sink or to swim, 

The water your head does trim,

Having to recharge your body’s positivity to the brim, 

Another day- how grim, 


Friends and family come and go,

You try not to seem to low,

The loneliness goes slow, 

Hoping your inner strength continues to grow,


The walking dead,

But it’s all in your head,

The next day I dread,

Laying in pain in bed,


Another day,

You will rise with the sun for the day,

Another game to play,

This day you must fight and slay.

Feeling sluggish and rubbish when you have woken up? Get boosting up on bananas the more the better - they will help settle your stomach, boosting digestion, they are a mood enhancer, they will give you the energy you need and keep you full. Buy my book for banana receipe ideas.
Wake up every morning and ATLEAST have one glass of lemon water before doing anything else! Ideally try to drink a litre of water. The lemon wakes up your digestive system ready for the day and has great cleansing properties.
Check your dairy and meat intake - dairy can sit in your system for up to seven days unable to digest properly. Meaning other foods also get neglected and nurtients aren't absorbed properly and you feel extremely bloated. Go and smell your food bin, your stomach will be in that state. Rotting foods in your belly - hmm nice.
Bananas, Rice, Potatoes, Leafy Greens, Corn, Beans, Lentils etc PACK THEM IN GO MAD.
NEVER COUNT CALORIES - NEVER RESTRICT!! These restriction 'starvation' diets who tell you to only eat 500 calories a day then have a treat day - where you binge out and eat WAY too much, is simply messing up your metabolism and on your binge days yours body stores all the fat meaning you gain weight because it knows it is going to go back into starvation mode and needs to hold onto every little thing it can. HELLO WEIGHT GAIN. 

Life is too short not to live it to the full, making yourself happy.
