Life’s Beatings

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.
