Freedom

Touching and beautifully written.

A Lion Sleeps in the Heart of the Brave

what-cannot-be-said-will-be-wept

And so I keep talking
Until the tears
Stop falling

And so I keep walking
Until the path
Is worn solid

And so I keep looking
Until the hereafter
Reveals peace

And so I keep writing
Until the words
Speak truth

And so I keep fighting
Until my heart
Belongs to me

And so I keep loving
Until my spirit
Is free

Charles Bukowski – The Laughing Heart

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 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.

 

~Charles Bukowski
