Roll the dice…

“Sometimes the future doesn’t unfold the way you think it will.
Shit happens,
and
People sucks.”
-Hannah Baker, A fictional character of the book and series “Thirteen Reasons why”

It happens with all of us, shit happens with all of us. I used to tell people around me in their low time that Life has never been fair with anyone.

In a funny way, “No one is going to remain virgin, Life fucks everyone!”

Well, apart from this kind of saying. When I feel really sad or hopeless or something, I go to Charles Bukowski. To his one of my favourite poem Roll the dice. I read him, again and again and again…

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.

 

(Hope, It helps you too)
(Poem: All right reserved to Charles Bukowski)
