This is one of my favorite poetry pieces. It is encouraging and forceful at the same time, and urges us to live life fully while reminding us that we are perfect… If you would like to find and explore your own wonder and perfection, call me. It’s a fantastic journey.
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 to do it,
the more light there will be.
your life is your life.
know it while you have it.
you are marvelous
and the gods wait to delight
