Poem- Shattered

March 8, 2018






My heart is battered,

Like glass I shattered,

The castle I built so tall,

It’s destruction I was unable to stall, 

I feel the burning in my veins,

The pressure in my head feels like I have been hit by a number of trains,

The sickness of heartbreak is real,

Evermore the poison I feel,

How can I go on?

How much longer do I have to be strong?

Where is the sunshine and the rest?

Everyday I give nothing but my best,

Tears stain my face,

The challenge I always try to embrace, 

The stress,

To simply dress,

Is more than you will ever know,

Struggle on my face I will try never to show,

Bacteria eating my mind,

Myself I continue to try and find,

Help and my heart I will always give,

With myself no matter what I can’t forgive,

My efforts never enough,

It’s rough,

A war against my body,

A war with myself to be somebody,

Am I enough?

Am I tough?

The questions I always ask myself everyday,

Hoping to find the answers in some way,

The endless pain,

The storm with endless rain,

A smile, 

May take a while,

I’ll just find my crown,

Nobody will know of your real struggle around town, 

My life isn’t my dream,

A one man team,

Lonely and cold,

On to anything I will hold,

Hoping for better days but planning for the worst,

Thoughts - into tears make me burst, 

A life so easy, fun and flowing,

I watch others glowing, 

My light dimmed and flickering in the shadows so hard to see,

Out of the cage - I shout to be free,

My life is my journey and me,

Whether or not it’s enough - I did the best I could being me.

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.
