The Laughing Heart - 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

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 marvellous.

the gods wait to delight in you.
