Poem- Loss & Reality

April 2, 2018

As the trees and flowers bloom so should you,

Dismissing all that you do,

Never got you anywhere,

An aching pain too harsh to bare,


Taking the bullet to save others but living with the bullet hole,

Never feeling complete or whole,

Wandering alone on a road with an unknown destination,

There is no relief or vacation,


We sometimes win,

But where do I begin,

The losses we feel,

Are more than real,


Far too great for us to deal,

Time doesn’t heal,

Only hits home what we have missed and loved - don’t you see,

A girl searching to be happy and me,


Dreaming of the day I will bloom,

No longer feeling invisible in a room,

Learn to think of me,

Piece the puzzle back together like it should be,


Recklessly I can love,

Knowing my soul would end up in a heaven above,

No pain on the inside or the out,

Living life without any doubt,


Running through the woods,

No longer crying for hours causing major road floods,

Breathing in happiness and pleasures,

Making memories I will forever cherish as our greatest treasures,


Flying in the cloud above,

Pain being zapped by love,

Dancing in the rain,

Laughing off the nightmare of the strain,


Be beautiful, valued and irreplaceable,

A dream that is simple and acceptable,

So hard to capture,

Endless torture,


Life goes on,

Time ticks on,

Boof it’s gone,

You never got your stage place to have shone,


Mourn the hurt that has battered you,

Despite all that you do,

It doesn’t level up or give you what you really desire,

I am a hot burning fire,


I hope I inspire,

 Before my time does expire,

Did I love enough?

Was I weak when things got tough?


Was I enough?

Should I have done more despite feeling rough?

Love is simple yet so complex, 

With the rules we cannot flex,


Just take the bullets and face the pain,

Rising again and again - never showing the strain,

Walk with me,

Don’t cry for me,


God’s plan,

God’s plan I am just human,

My life isn’t my life,

My skin doesn’t show the wounds inflicted by fate’s knife, 


My love won’t falter, 

I may not reach the alter,

I loved deeply and beyond words,

I have put down my swords,


Years will tell our story, 


We wrote a story that didn’t fit our storyline,

My life you did however help to define.

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.
