Thirteen is a worn-out fairytale book.

An understanding of reality,

Yet still not understanding.



Cinderella

Without the prince;

Only Dreams.

Waiting for the glass slipper

That may never come.



Never enough time,

Racing away

when the clock strikes midnight.



The story continues,

unfinished.

The happy ending is eagerly,

But secretively,

Awaited.

But many pages lie ahead
