Head Swells - Poetry Sunday

May 24, 2019

 

 

My head is on fire, 

My will to inspire, 

The cries at night, 

Can't affect my fight, 

I will write in words on the page as I feel, 

The pain that is inside is all to real, 

I may be more than you can handle you see, 

I am just trying to cope you see, 

I have lost the old me, 

I only hope to be the best person I can be, 

I write my story as you can tell, 

Not everything is always well, 

I have my bad and my good, 

I try to understand as we all should,

That happiness is a journey not a destination you see, 

I know from this pain we all wish to be free, 

Never the less, 

You can guess, 

I cry, 

I lie, 

I tell you I am fine, 

Quietly with you I will dine, 

My thoughts will haunt you, 

But what can you do, 

You speak to the world but that doesn't bring light, 

You have your goals within sight, 

You bury the bad, 

You want to be happy over sad, 

The dizzy spells, 

The alarm bells, 

The blurry mind that is in a fog, 

Making it often hard to blog, 

I will take my pain, 

I will handle my strain, 

Often I do crack, 

In m

 

otivation I will never lack, 

I am a broken mirror with lots of little pieces to find, 

My story is defined, 

By me, 

And only me you see, 

Nobody can understand me, 

For what I have become to be, 

Is someone I only hope people will be proud of now, 

Some days I wonder how, 

But I don't lose hope, 

It is a slippery slope, 

As for what lies ahead, 

I hope I can still raise my head, 

Never knowing what is next, 

Rarely making sense over text, 

My mind is a blur, 

My words I sometime slur, 

I do my best, 

Sometimes I have no option but to rest, 

For now you see, 

I am just trying to be the best person I can be, 

Maybe one day I will be free, 

We will just have to wait and see.

 

Sophie.

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.
