Powerful Quote From Charles Bukowski

Reading Time: 1 minute

Your life is your life
Don’t let it be clubbed into dank submission
Beyond the watch
There are always ways out
There is a light somewhere
It may not be much light but
It beats the darkness
Beyond the watch
The gods will offer you chances
Know them
Take them
You can’t beat death, but
You can beat death in life
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.
If you’re going to try
Go all the way
Don’t even try
If you’re going to try.
Go all the way
This could mean losing girlfriend
And maybe your mind.
Go all the way
It could mean not eating for 3 or 4 days
It could mean freezing on a park bench
It could mean jail
It could mean
Isolation is the gift.
All the other are a test of your endurance
Of how much you really want to do it
And you will do it
Despite rejection and the worst odds
It will be better than anything else you can imagine
If your going to try
Go all the way.
