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.
