The gods wait to delight in you.




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 darkness.
be on the watch.
the gods 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 do it,
the more light there will be.

your life is your life.
know life is your life.

know it while you have it.
you are marvelous

the gods wait to delight
in you.



-Charles Bukowski
"The Laughing Heart"
