The lucky number that you faithfully made a wish on
I closed and my eyes and opened my heart
Every desire, thought and need overflowed spilled out of head
My wishes never came true
But that didn’t stop me from wishing every time I caught the clock at precisely 11:11
I used to wish for little things like a new bike or an easy back oven
And then it became success
To be able to glide my fingers over the dreams that fuel my ambition
Where did 11:11 even evolve?
What makes it more hopeful than 12 or 13?
Why do I believe so deeply in a two digit number that has yet to prove its powers?
But I guess those are the questions that are met with answers like “Because it just is.”
