Stronger But Weaker - Poetry Sunday

Stronger But Weaker.


Take time,

To watch the clock chime, 

Losing my mind, 

Me? I am hard to find, 

I may smile, 

Really it has been a while, 

Here and there, 

But I am crying in despair

Keeping others happy only causes pain,

I am feeling the strain, 

Dying inside

It is one hell of a ride, 


Don't get me wrong, 

I always try to be strong

I am grateful for it all, 

It is often hard to stand up tall, 

The pain runs through me, 

Trapped and never free, 

Sick to my stomach with fear of the unknown and in the dark, 

I am fast losing my spark, 

Others may see, 

Or simply ignore me

I need time to heal

My life - my illness can try to steal




I cling on for life and some form of norm, 

It is one hell of a rough storm

Prepare for the tears, 

As everyday we face our worst fears, 

I know deep down inside you feel the pain too, 

The door out of the room - you walk through, 

Excess baggage to handle, 

Not wanting to be caught up in a scandal, 

My bell my ring, 

As the birds do sing, 

I am here and I fought, 

Extra time I have bought, 



For the ones who tried to bring you down, 

In their negativity you must never drown, 

They have to live with a heart that isn't pure, 

Always hoping out for a cure, 

To prove everyone wrong, 

That I am indeed strong, 

Words last,

Don't look back at the past, 

Stronger but weaker all rolled into one,

Blink and it has all gone, 

For now we must hold, 

A secret fight that is yet to be told.

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.
