Breaking down the problem

A shadow of the daunting undertaking looms immense

With a power resting largely in a duped imagination

To quell all resolve and to test the best of wills

And to dampen all but ardent motivation

But broken into pieces this puzzle starts to crumble

And with methodical investigation of each section

The investment of time and energy on the components and the crux

Demystifies and simplifies a gloomy apprehension

Slowly parts reveal the keys to their solutions

And carefully their complications are exposed

Until each vexing question is solved by patient isolation

And the mind now free to realise the whole
