The Laughing Heart

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 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 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.

Charles Bukowski
