Looked into my hand,

a soothsayer he was

Three lines, he said.

For health, wealth and happiness

Blessed health,

plentiful wealth

and happiness….

he frowned.

Looked me in the eye,

‘There’s a line

that plays hide and seek

It’s right in front of you

Your happily ever after

yet you chose not to seek it

not a priority, not for you.’

I stared blankly, wordlessly.

The soothsayer was gone,

In his place stood

My friend and guide

with a frown on his face

‘What happened to you?’

I stared blankly, wordlessly.
