Song Lyrics

I find myself abandoned. 
I just can stand this, 
when you’re met with the test, 
unholy rest, and godlessness 
as my crest. 
How am I derived? 
The same two cents 
I threw to thrive 
sent me to poverty, 
forming payments, 
from the thoughts I’ve denied. 
I lied to protect the mood, 
detected what was killing you, 
down the drinks to effect the smooth, 
giving too much was my crowning jewel. 
Now, they’ve mined the blood diamonds, 
good riddance of a polished fool, 
as they watched the reds 
send me to the sea marooned.

If you do one thing today, let it be this: spend the best £6.99 of your life on this book. It is the most beautiful book I’ve ever seen. After my Waterstones appreciation post the other day, my mum surprised me with this! “Calm” - it’s exactly what it says on the tin. It’s essentially the most perfect handbook to mindfulness. It has eight sections- Nature, Sleep, Travel, Relationships, Food, Children, Work and Creativity. It aims to develop your relationship with each of these aspects of your life in to a more calming, mindful one. Some pages contain advice, some stories, poems, pictures, practices…some are journal pages for you to fill in/draw on. It’s just perfect. Treat yourself. 💙
