Poetry Sunday - The Fighter Within Me

March 10, 2019




The Fighter Within Me 

The river flows,

That is how it goes, 

It cannot be stopped or questioned you see, 

I am on the journey to rediscover me, 

I have built my walls from the bricks you did throw, 

I don't blame you I just want you to know, 

For all you see, 

Is the happy me, 

The tears are the rivers that flow in the dark, 

For a while there I lost my spark, 

I was at the lowest of the low, 

I only hoped you would see my glow, 

I will have you know, 

To the challenge I could have said no,

My voice I had lost in waters so deep,

You did haunt my sleep,

For the dreams I did keep,

Over the pain I admit I weep,

The spirit inside, 

Is always ready to embrace the ride ,

Even if my body is not and wants to fall, 

I will drill a hole in the wall, 

To keep in sight, 

The goals and targets I set through the night, 


Isn't always the most pleasant dinner date, 

Sometimes a hefty bill, 

Keeping the strength and the will, 

To stay out on the front lines of the fight, 

Giving life all of your might, 

For they will see, 

In the end what it des take to be me, 

The strength that for years was dismissed, 

Never feeling missed, 

Often invisible amongst the crowd, 

Disappearing without a sound, 

I have always been here, 

Always near, 

I flirt with words to describe my mind, 

Always on a mission you will find, 

I have always been me, 

Pain has brought out the fighter in 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.
