Today’s prompt is “Hideout.”
Calling on some personal pain (as poets do) and realizing that the hardship that was so dreadful is also what makes one stronger, today’s card, 8 in the major arcana, Strength, fits perfectly.
Heart sore, uncertain, I hid myself away,
imagining I would never recover.
The outside world was far too bright
for my weary, wounded eyes.
I wanted nothing to do with people
who might bump or jostle
my broken heart.
But time has a way of healing
even the deepest wounds.
Who could have guessed
the strength such scars can give?
