Hi, this is the story of a young boy who made some heart wrenching mistakes but ultimately had a chance to fix them. I feel that it is a story that needs to be shared with as many people as possible as I am sure there are many out there who can relate. Written in rhyming prose, my hope is to have readers understand and perhaps alter a decision they made once a long time ago to turn their backs on those who matter most.

Humbly yours,
Merahs

A Young Boy's Story

  1. 1. Once upon a time there was a young boy who was raised in a very wealthy family. The family had factories all over the world ranging from plastics to pharmaceuticals to leather, you name it, they made it. <br />Many thought the young boy swam in a money pool in his backyard - they had no idea that his life was about to become very hard.<br />
  2. 2. Each member of the boy’s family was to learn one trade of the family business so as to carry on the legacy when the founders passed on - At a very young age, as early as 11, one by one the young boy and his siblings learned a discipline - The young boy of this story was meant to be in charge of the plastics factory, bar none.<br />For 6 years the boy toiled and labored to learn all there was to know about plastics and everything around - as well as how to carry on the family legacy and to make his dad proud.<br />One day the boy’s father was so pleased with his son’s progress that he went on a trip and left him in charge - - the boy was now 17 and was roaming the factory at large.<br />
  3. 3. The young boy’s father was away for five months so sang the lark - By now, the boy had understood the operations of the factory and was determined to make his mark - He felt comfortable to make operational and efficiency changes without first seeking his father’s permission.<br />Little did the boy know this would be an awful decision.<br />Though the changes were for the best when the boy’s father returned he was shocked at the changes made by his son – he became very angry with the young man and insisted that if he could do better, then he should do it himself - then by his way get it done. <br />
  4. 4. The young man caught the earliest flight he could and sought out his own fortune, doing things his way.<br />But destiny was plotting a dramatically different course for this boy that day.<br />
  5. 5. Just after he landed, the eager young man made a b-line to the nearest bank to withdraw funds for his new venture - Though he didn’t even know what he would be doing yet – he couldn’t help but thrive on the freedom of his new found pressure<br />When he arrived at the bank, the young boy discovered - that while in the air, his father never sputtered – <br />- He had drawn all the boy’s money out and closed all his accounts - The once rich, promising eager boy was now penniless and had to find some way to work his circumstances out– success was his only option without a doubt. <br />Not only did this young man have to succeed bankrupt with only his health - he needed to find a way to succeed better than anyone else.<br />
  6. 6. The once rich, now penniless young man pleaded with the bank to give him some way to live now that he was all alone in a country across the ocean from his home - The bank suggested he apply for a loan. <br />Using his wits and in shear desperation the boy qualified for a $10,000 bank donation - The money was approved on a Thursday and took 3 business days to clear – Thus for 4 days the boy would have no money and would have to live out on the streets in fear.<br />The boy found the safest park bench and passed 4 days here – all the while planning out his road for the next 30 years.<br />
  7. 7. Lo and behold, the boy searched far and wide and across the globe for any sort of product to be sold – he only had six month’s rent in his pocket and an attitude that was frighteningly bold.<br />After a long search, late one day - the youth found an odd product that he determined was a bidet - He researched the US market and analyzed the deepest market demands and competitor’s market share - and determined that the bidet was his answer to all those things that kept him up at night while in bed at the ceiling he would stare. <br />
  8. 8. The young boy thus launched the wide scale distribution of this marvelous unit the in toilet seat bidet - and found his market growing exponentially day after day.<br />As the boy’s revenue figures grew day over day, year over year – the boy find an unfamiliar peace – he could finally live without his worst fear.<br />But the boy’s worst fear was not living a life with penniless means now and today – his worst fear was not rising to his father’s challenge and not accomplishing things successfully his way. <br />
  9. 9. Hence, 15 years had passed and this young boy was now a respected self made entrepreneur – as he passed on from business to business, selling them for sizable gain on the regular his attitude surprisingly become more and more demure – yet he had heard not a word from his father once throughout this decade and a half ten-ure.<br />The boy had put himself through college, and university and graduate school and more – he now felt that it was time to finally settle the score<br />
  10. 10. The boy now a man - returned to his homeland, thousands of miles across the sea – His sister was getting married and this happy occasion brought them once more together – the once happy family<br />He had written a speech to his father and rehearsed it to perfection on through the morrow - but when the fates rose to carry his voice he saw in his father’s eyes the torment of a man who for 15 years has suffered heart’s greatest sorrow<br />No picture or sound can convey – the heart wrenching anguish that was evident on this day.<br />
  11. 11. A dialogue was finally opened between a father and his long lost son – though it was quite clear that the past could not be undone – it made no sense to carry on the torture for even another rising of the sun.<br />Stay on this slide a little while longer to hear this melody in its entirety to realize how a life without love and persistence is an empty and obscure life and existence. <br />Dusk was about to set in on the feuds of the past – only a self righteous, conceited fool would let this time for reconciliation pass – If you have ever had a feud for that which you have no remorse, read this story further and perhaps you can alter this unfortunate life course <br />
  12. 12. Yes it is true, this young man was once proud and angry and arrogant and blind – though now as he looked into his father’s tear filled eyes – the scene would make even the most haughty fellow change his mind.<br />You cannot change your family at the end of the day – even after 15 years there is nothing contrasting you can say - No anger, no rage, no arrogance or conceit - can change the fact that your family was there at your first heart beat.<br />Take this young man’s story and apply it in kind – for I guarantee you this dear reader – the love of your family - you will never elsewhere find.<br />
  13. 13. The sun finally sets on this true story – of a young boy who on his own found his true glory.<br />Though of the glory I speak – is not what others commonly seek – I am ever truthful when I say – the glory of this young man was not found in money or fame or fortune or prize – it was found in the window through his father’s eyes<br />What makes the story ever so sweet and for which this young man prayed - is that a rebirth of love was found on this young man’s, sister’s wedding day.<br />Embrace your family and love them true – for without them dear reader, there is no you - Put the past behind you and carry forth – perhaps this young man’s story can inspire for you toward the same rebirth.<br />
  14. 14. Don’t let another day pass with a sorrowful and bleak setting sun – begin a new era of your life today even if before this story you thought this could be something never done.<br />I hope you enjoyed this story. Please share it with whomever you wish. Perhaps some who read this will be inspired to reverse a choice they made once a long time ago. <br />– Merahs Diab<br />
