Life in poetry

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.

know them.

take them.

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

in you.

Peace, friends.
