Lucky number 13

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.

    Gee, you're a wealth of information. Very clever to be enumerating (pun intended) it in verse. I'm seriously impressed, Kelleyana.

    * i have never held superstition very close yet, * 13, has always seemed to be a very * lovely number * and i believe that the * 13th chapter of the * I Book of Corinthians, represents it well * love sarah
