153. Goodness 

 

It struck me recently just how closely tied physical and mental health are. Although I have already been explained this reality in detail, a few years back by my then nutritionist, it took me till now to fully comprehend what this really means on a day to day basis. I wrote this poem to try and explain my thoughts..

Banana and grape, 

Green protein lake, 

Wild. 

Salad and Tuna, 

Egg whites so lunar, 

Soothe. 

Chemicals balanced, 

No sirens, silence

Calm.

Building blocks hardened,

Temple is charmed,

Smile. 

Now add a pizza,

Bottle of vodka,

Chocolate and cake, 

White bread and steak, 

Body says hold on, 

What is this mate? 

Suddenly anxious,

Unknowingly grating,

Food is the fuel,

For all. Yes, the brain.
