Poem- In A World

November 26, 2017


In a world where you want to fit,

You do your bit,

Show kindness,

Spread happiness,


Yet you are locked out,

Disconnected from what life is really about,

Pain, pain, pain,

Through sunshine and the rain,


You must get up and walk,

Nobody renogising your confusion as you talk,

The effort just to be norm and act that way,

A bigger effort than I can say,


Alone you cry,

Move your body you do try,

Through the day you ignore the pain in anyway,

Distractions to get through the day,


The nights are long,

You try to stay strong,

They are bleak,

You cry and feel weak,


Wondering what will come from tomorrow,

Not wishing to wallow in your own sorrow,

The sun rises,

There is not any oom for compromises,


The alarm rings,

The aching of your joints stings,

You wipe the tears,

The time to face the world once again nears,


They will never see my real pain because I hide away,

Trying not to give anything away,

It’s easier not to talk,

Make an excuse not to walk,


So you weren’t falling over yourself unable to see straight at all,

Everyone just waiting to see you fall,

You won’t rest until you finish this race,

No matter the pace,


I am ahead of many already,

Take to your feet but please be steady, 

Didn’t know I was suffering in pain?

Good I don’t want need you thinking I am insane,


You try to see a new day,

As a new slate in some way,

Maybe things will be better somehow,

You adapt as best you can to the now,


Alone you feel,

The pain and suffering is real,

In my story your heart I hope to steal,

My journey to heal,


I am a girl trying to fit into a life which doesn’t want me,

I am not one to give up easily you will see,

Don’t judge me,

I am already miles ahead of where others would be.

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.
