Lucky number 13

by Kelleyana

Acute power or a mystical virtue?
Not daring to venture further
Became superstitious by token and sign,
Leaving the most positive meanings behind

Ends with a 3 that reminds me of the trinity
A belief that kept within
All good things comes in double,
You're not alone just behind 1
Together you became 13 an age in certain
Tradition when a boy became a man

Among the many numbers
People pretends you came out the worst
even saying that you are a curse
But besides all others, you came first
Ignorance do hurts,
So they put you behind as a negative sign

Thinking of you makes me enjoy
The intricacies of mental calculates
A million seconds in 13 days,
13 stripes for thirteen states
A Friday 13 in every year

Again let me be a bit humoristic
Since I'm in love with mathematics
For those who calculates well,
Come let me play with your head
Close your eyes using the power of your mind
Pick and choose which power hidden inside you
The clock strike 13 hours, the mind reminds
us that it's 1 'o' clock,
infact we're back at the starting block

Since things became a mystery we tend
Not to go beyond our senses
13 is a number that all human share
The 13 major joints in our body
13 lunar cycles in a solar year
And the moon travels 13 degrees across the sky everyday
Making things works in a mysterious way.

Interesting write, I enjoyed the read. It's funny how some say 13 is a bad number or how friday the 13th is supersitious. It just so happens that 13 is one of my lucky numbers and friday the 13th is one of my luckiest days unlike many others. Overall a wonderful write which I enjoyed. I would have liked to see some more punctuation however since it adds to the overall flow.

Keep up the great work.

Peace, Joe

*This part was my favorite. I really liked how you wrote this. The tone was so playful and relaxed. I like the imagery and the metaphors you used as well. I think you did a good job with the style and the flow was different but effective for what you were saying. I also like the idea of the whole poem too. Very creative. Keep it up. Nik*

Wow well I definitly learned a lot from this poem. I liked how informative it was. It was a fresh new spin on a poem. Although I felt it might have been a tad too much to take in, it was good none the less. Please keep writing like this you will not only learn but so will your readers. 5/5

Overall your message was beautifully put especially the metaphors, but these lines really stuck the most to me. It's like writing the journey of a youngling reaching adulthood. 5/5
