    It’s polished and pristine
    So fresh and so clean
    I like the way it shines
    It’s keeping things in sync
    Or so I’d like to think
    This lucky charm of mine

    Nineteen seventy-one
    The year we were born
    Grungy when acquired
    With time I came to know
    How to make us glow
    Now, it keeps me inspired

    It’s seen the walls I’ve scaled
    Battles I’ve prevailed
    Seen me face many threats
    So admired by eyes
    Saves me from demise
    Garnishing my neck

    Covered or exposed
    Wherever I go
    Never collecting dust
    Silver in color
    Worth just a dollar
    To me thirty grand plus

    A memento...which may become a family heirloom. Those are the things that kind bind a family...a symbol of family.

    Nicely written.

    I see you're writing in a disciplined poetic style. Not I, I usually write in 2 line rhymes. :lol:

    :thanks:for sharing a part of you with us.

    Never know what may become lucky for you, perhaps it's just the positive thoughts surrounding it. Anywho, I liked this flow.
