The Laughing Heart

I despise nights like this, my old friend insomnia has decided to surprise me without being invited. Brand new month, boy how 2013 ticks away. By all means, I am trying to spend lesser time on Facebook, most of my friends are in a wedding marathon, everyone is either busy getting married or posting up pictures of their babies. And that makes me feel old and bitter. 

Been doing a lot of research on non profit organizations. I wish I could just get away somewhere, do some volunteering work in a third world country. Meet new people, live in a new town and break the routine life here in Kuala Lumpur. It's funny and at the same time sad how I can't even afford on the courses which I stumble across on the internet. But I won't give up, I hope the opportunity will come real soon. 

At the mean's my favorite poem by Charles Bukowski:

"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."
