지인이 페이스북에 올린 동영상을 보고 알게 되었고 무척 와 닿는 내용이었는데요. 찾아보니 찰스 부코스키(August 16, 1920 – March 9, 1994)란 사람의 시 두개를 낭독해주고 있는 영상이었습니다.

기록은 기억을 이길 수 없다고 누군가 그랬다는데 이런 마음에 드는 내용도 그 기분이 생생할 때 기록해 두지 않으면 당시의 기분, 감각 등을 잊을 것 같아 기록으로 남겨 두기 위한 포스팅입니다.

Charles Bukowski

The Laughing Heart

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.

Roll the Dice

if you’re going to try, go all the
way.
otherwise, don’t even start.

if you’re going to try, go all the
way.
this could mean losing girlfriends,

wives, relatives, jobs 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 derision,
mockery,
isolation.
isolation is the gift,
all the others are a test of your
endurance, of
how much you really want to
do it.
and you’ll do it
despite rejection and the worst odds
and it will be better than
anything else
you can imagine.

if you’re going to try,
go all the way.
there is no other feeling like
that.
you will be alone with the gods
and the nights will flame with
fire.

do it, do it, do it.
do it.

all the way
all the way.
you will ride life straight to
perfect laughter,
it’s the only good fight
there is.
