Plan X

Way back at the beginning,

remember Plan A?

You had an idea.

Put it into play.

But then came Plan B

and C and D

followed by E and F and G.

Be flexible and rearrange.

Now use H and I.

Adapt with each and every change.

Don’t lose the will to try.


Is the end ever in sight?

You persevere though cannot see,

chewing without a bite.


It’s Q and R and S and T!

Where you stay committed,

others would flee.

U - V - W

Almost there now.

One more attempt,

don’t throw in the towel.

See, I told you,

it was to be the next.

Sometimes you need

to wait for Plan X.
