~ 13 ~

13 is a number with better consequences,

I follow it truly for my lucky chances...

A childhood memory takes me back to 13, Old Balbir Road,

Of primary school and paper planes and my pale green toad!

Of a lot of friends and games of cricket, of the 13 runs I made,

In a single over and no wickets was my biggest cricket achievement!

It brings me to my 13th spring when I changed my school,

Made new friends, read more books and learned the new cool...

It was the 13th year of my life when I first met my future Love,

But at the time it was mostly just books and friends and a learning curve!!

Oh! blessed 13 dear people fear you in vain,

In unknown dread and hateful spite, unjustified disdain!!

For you have been my lucky charm, my fortunate blessed karma...
