Thirteen is a very lucky age!
Hope runs strong as brand-new powers emerge.
In thought and feeling one has turned a page,
Revealing childish pleasures one would purge.
The future is a large and empty room,
Easy enough to furnish with one's dreams!
Eventually, one's brightest flowers will bloom.
Now best friends forever share their schemes.
