Throbbing Body - Poetry

July 14, 2018



Aching in my joints, muscles and bones all the time,

Never feeling in my prime,

The sun sometimes a friend sometimes a foe,

I never really know,

My battery pack in flashing,

The rain is lashing,

The heat,

Makes me skip a heart beat,

Inside I know something isn’t quite right,

Trying to keep smiley and bright,

My ribs are sore,

I can’t walk in this heat anymore,

Tired but why?

Why do I want to cry?

I want to sleep,

My dreams I cling on to and want to keep,

Time goes by,

On a bed I must lie, 

Rashes play dot to dot,

I don’t know an awful lot,

I laugh and I cry,

My head pulses so badly I can’t lie, 

The pressure to intense I don’t want to move,

I am losing my groove,

We try to be normal and live life to the full,

Never wanting to feel dull, 

I do what I can,

I am only one human, 

The pain,

Is insane,

The strength we gain,

Helps us dance through the rain,

Take my blood,

From my veins will it flood?

Give me some answers for my pain,

They are such a strain,

Always changing with something new,

I never knew,

The complex game,

That would mean my life would never be the same,

My head throbs,

Your life this disease robs,

Hear my sobs?

My whole body on fire as it throbs,

Food isn’t as appealing,

The pain I am feeling,

Is real,

It’s so hard for me to deal,

With the everyday life we live,

To my pain I can forgive,

For the Sophie you see,

Is the person I have blossomed into to be,

The best version I can,

But remember I am only human.

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.
