Your life is your life


your life is your life by Charles Bukowski

your life is your life
don’t let it be clubbed
into dark 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 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.

This poem is like a prayer. I learned it by heart. My life is my life.
I sit here on the sofa, the TV is on. My PC is on my lap. Next to me are the cookies that my mother gave me.
I feel absolutely fantastic alone here.
Sometimes one must steal time for oneself. The next two days are mine. I’ll fill them with soft yoga. I’ll stroll around. Who knows what else comes into my mind….

I wish all my readers a very joyful time. The next year will come so fast…..
