A to Z – Written December 2003 (Aged 28)

A to Z

some people go from a to z
just as some,
sleep easily in their beds
some go from a to b 
some people need to go further
and they search for c
some go via n 
then again, some,
just are not sure what they are 
so they undertake a journey 
that would be easier by car 

some people go from a to z
as quickly as can be
a trend that is rising upwards
one that everyone can see
some take a little longer
those people are like me 
i have been to almost all the letters
and i have stopped at every station
hoping for the right destination 
a to be is fine,
a to z does take a little longer
i guess it is just a matter of time 
the journey can only make you stronger
