It’s a biotic engine. This body on loan
To the heart of my spirit for one humbled while
Is a biomechanical marvel to praise.
It sustains my existence in wonderful ways.
But if I treat it wrongly it will turn hostile.
Fascinating is this structure I seem own.
The word ‘health’ comes from the word ‘whole.’ What does it mean?
Harmony among body, mind, and the spirit
Is the true indicator of health excellent.
Constantly running engines must be kept content,
And the fuel that it’s given will help keep it fit.
It is all kept in check through digestive hygiene.
Someone is not in good health if there’s no ailment
Yet the energy level is grossly wanting.
Food that’s cooked loses enzymes that can’t be replaced
By the strongest of gut systems and it is faced
With an uncalled for struggle – a truly daunting
Thing to put a machine through. The soul must lament.
Eating foods that are living, like herbs, nuts, and fruits,
Is the best for the body that’s also alive.
They contain the ingredients for digestion.
Try it out for a few days. What will have begun
Is the process of living not just to survive.
Energy is the life force for worthwhile pursuits.
