The Laughing Heart by Charles Bukowski
Your life is your life
don't let it be clubbed into dank submission.
Be on the watch.
There are ways out.
There is a light somewhere.
It may not be much light but it beats the darkness.
be on the watch.
The Gods will offer you chances,
You can't beat death but you can beat death in life, sometimes.
And the more often you learn to do it,
the more light there will be.
Your life is your life.
Know it while you have it.
You are marvelous.
The Gods wait to delight in you.
Growth doesn't come easy, but when you learn to know and weigh whether things matter or not, it saves you quality time and better choices. There are a lot of misleading pathways and it's easy to get lost. When you focus on what is important and distance yourself from what's not, that is key to something better. When there is a light, there is a way and that will guide you, your inner self will lift you if you are not stuck or choose to be stuck on something you are supposed to let go. Unpack some luggage that you don't need on your journey, travel light, it's a lot easier, literally and personally. You are beautiful, amazing, incredibly awesome! Create a life where you can tell yourself, "I'm proud of me." And it is one of the best rewards you can do for yourself. Good things happen to those who are patient and believe it. Most people just exist, they forfeited their chances. You have the to power to decide how you spend your life. Time is too short, and death is inevitable, it's harder when you feel like dying when you are still alive than when you're dead. Your life is yours, its only one, make it the best while you have it. You are marvelous!
