Heart Ache - Poem

January 23, 2018



You know the sadness your presence brings,

In your ears negativity sings,

You try to shake it out of you,

Nothing is ever good enough that you do,

You fight for your own happiness and the ones you hold dear,

Day after day you let them down your one and only fear,

You try to be upbeat and be a smile,

Rarely real- it’s been a while,

You lock yourself away to recharge and stay out of the way,

Unsociable some may say,

I cry alone so I am not spreading my sad heart around,

Dying inside without a sound,

You feel and cause the pain,

Just an endless drain,

There is no right or wrong,

You try to be strong,

You try to save the hurt, 

Use positivity and the traits you have learnt,

You try everyday to have purpose when you didn’t want to get out of bed,

There we go again you see red, 

When will this nightmare end,

It’s never my friend,

Alone in no-man’s land,

It’s sinking sand, 

My loved ones I don’t want to cause pain,

Somehow wherever I walk I bring the rain,

When I walk in,

The stress for others does begin,

I’d rather sleep,

Harbour the secrets I keep,

My nights filled with nightmares,

Open your eyes - the heartbreak to nothing else compares,

My love for others goes above my own,

Within myself I have grown,

This is and will never be enough,

It’s tough,

We have laughed and joked about health,

We revalued wealth,

But this game,

Makes everyone insane,

We did all we could,

Not always as we should,

Nothing else matters now you see,

Sometimes we have to let the things we love go and be free.

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.
