About A Major Upheaval

“Those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.”

-Georges Bernard Shaw

We thought we had leaders and that our country was in good hands
But sadly all they wanted was to be the ones in command
A herd of sheep we were
Before doing anything, to those “leaders” we would always refer

They would talk nonsense
While we would accept it without defense
We would trust those liars
Even after they failed to meet our basic desires

They would steal money and use it for their own sake
And we would remain silent, watching them our properties take
They would bribe people to vote for them in order to always dominate
And they would make promises but after all, they did nothing else but prate

They created parties in order to divide us
We will always argue with each other’s but never discuss
They would turn us against each others
And we will have nothing but hate for one another

For thirty years, we have done nothing but adapt
But little did we know that all this time we were all trapped
Now dear fellow citizens, it’s time to stop adapting And instead to start changing

Enough blindness and naivety
Let your voices echo tenaciously
Enough of these heartless shredding our rights into millions of pieces
It’s time to stand up so that mascarade ceases

Down with these thieves who stole not only our money, but also our trust
And turned all the good we still had into dust
In just ten days, you showed those who have failed us for thirty years who we truly are
And you made my heart so proud to be Lebanese by far

In just ten days, you convinced yourself that they were all laughing at you
And you walked away by your will from their crew
You must be tired and hopeless
But on your efforts should be your main focus

It’s okay if you didn’t tear those thieves down
But surely you have let your hatred towards each other’s drown
You have united again our country
And by this you created a new history.

  4. In the awesome pattern of things you secure a B+ just for hard work. Exactly where you actually misplaced me personally was in the particulars. You know, it is said, the devil is in the details… And it couldn’t be much more true at this point. Having said that, let me tell you just what did deliver the results. Your authoring is certainly quite persuasive and this is probably why I am taking the effort to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, while I can notice the jumps in logic you come up with, I am not really convinced of just how you seem to unite your points which inturn make your conclusion. For now I will subscribe to your issue however hope in the future you link your facts better.


  5. May I just say what a comfort to uncover someone who truly understands what they’re talking about on the internet. You definitely realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More and more people must check this out and understand this side of the story. It’s surprising you’re not more popular given that you definitely have the gift.
