The laughing heart....



The latest commercial of Lewis caught by eye.The poem in it had so much depth and meaning to it.On further search I came to know that its written by Charles Bukeweski.His poems got recognition after his death.He mostly wrote about freedom,revolution."The laughing heart" is by far his best works.I have no clue what it has to do with selling denims neither with the American revolution but I sure know it has great impact on you if you relate it to our life.It gives me kick.
Here it goes:

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 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.
-- by Charles Bukowski.
