Poem - Christmas Cheer Sadness

December 24, 2017



Christmas cheer,

It comes around every year,

On my face there is a tear,

As the time draws ever near,

You are reminded you are different and not like your friends,

There are many lose ends,

Left unseen in the dark,

You try so hard to keep your spark,

You watch everyone enjoy,

Soaking up all the joy,

From your desk you watch cars come and go, 

Unable to drive far away you know,

A shell of a person you used to be,

When will you be able to be free,

Four walls surround you,

Always show the kind heart that makes you,

Bed over the bar,

You can’t go for long or far,

Outings endless trouble for you,

How can I make this day through?

You hear other cheers,

From your eyes roll the tears,

A life I nolonger live,

It’s not my fault but myself I can’t forgive,

People don’t see you pain,

They are just out to see from life what they can gain,

That’s okay,

I’ll watch you play,

Don’t get mad at my sadness though,

It’s silly I know,

You walk in my shoes and see,

You will want to be anyone but me, 

Take the Christmas cheer with you,

Promise me to live for me, if it’s the last thing you do,

I’ll dress up pretty to hide my pain,

You may think I am going insane, 

Christmas is here,

And most importantly I am still here.

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.
