Some say: ‘It’s easier said then done’;
Others have similar sayings, with a different turn.
Lebanon, the saying goes: ‘ He who gets beaten
Down isn’t the same as the one who counts the beatings’.
Whether you take this literally or metaphorically
It seems logical that the one being beaten constantly
Feels the pain and heartache at a different level
Than an observer, sympathizer, or companionable
Friend or family member. It’s understandable
That being the recipient of such bad deeds affects
Not only the constitution of the person, but also
His character traits alter, his mood vacillates,
His very being shifts into negativity, unconscious
Of the act of changing till someone wakes him/her
Up to their behavioral substitutions that aren’t a part of you.
Ever! Don’t wait so long for things to become insurmountable,
Identify the cause of your beat down, face the indomitable
Obstacles that seem too solid to be broken down
And resolved as an entity. ‘Divide and conquer’,
They say, so too should your problems be cleaved
Into manageable parts, so your problems are metamorphosed,
Turned into simpler goals that are easier to be triumphed
Over, boosting your selfconfidence into believing
In your ability to dispatch the rest of the issues revolving
Around the whole that is effortlessly solvable.
