Poetry- Searching

December 30, 2018

I searched the world but found nothing that answered my pain, 

Numb to the core -  I can't handle the strain, 

The mountains climbed, 

Myself I wanted to find, 

 

I ran through the dark woods, 

The river banks always bursting with the floods, 

From tears I could not hide, 

For the girl I could not find, 

 

I wrote a story to embarrassed to tell, 

People think they know me well, 

Secrets write the mystery that may never be solved, 

Time after time problems never seem to be resolved, 

 

I left my message to you for you to read,

Nobody knows where the path to the future will lead, 

Pain is like poison and is so toxic you see, 

It has taken a part of me, 

 

I have learn my lesson over the years, 

Nothing can ever come from shedding tears, 

We fight head on, 

Blink and the time has gone, 

 

All we have is now, 

Take the stage and give us a bow, 

Create dreams from a creative mind, 

I know I am a rare find, 

 

Moving forward ever still, 

Popping an extra pill, 

To keep me well through the day, 

Our dreams are in arms way,

 

What more can I say?

All we have is today, 

Pain is tragic, 

Life can be magic, 

 

Through the pain we cry, 

In pain we lie, 

Alone we feel, 

We are loved a great deal, 

 

Here we stand, 

You can take my hand, 

The garden's blossom and stars shine bright, 

That is you all right, 

 

My food prints in the sand,

With you I stand, 

We have walked, 

We have talked, 

 

I write about you, 

All we have been through, 

Here, 

We face every fear, 

 

 

We chase the dreams with the goals we seek, 

Feeling bleak, 

Won't stop our minds running away, 

Wanting to play, 

 

Answers rarely exist, 

To cave in - we must resist, 

My story is bold, 

It is waiting to be told.

COOKING TIPS

#1
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.
 
#2
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.
 
#3
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.
 
#4
DO NOT FEAR CARBS - THEY ARE NOT THE ENEMY! CARB UP!!
Bananas, Rice, Potatoes, Leafy Greens, Corn, Beans, Lentils etc PACK THEM IN GO MAD.
 
#5
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.
