I'm Gonna Roll the Dice...

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, its
the only good fight
there is.

~Bukowski


Soooooo...I'm rolling the dice. I've made the decision to go. Several posts ago I was on the fence...about should I stay or should I go...and...I'm gonna go. Because, I have to. I need to. Not so sure for how long...but I leave next week...leaving the country. Hasta la Vista! Adios! Hasta luego! Can you guess where I'm going? Yeah. I'm staying on this side of the hemisphere...but that's the only clue I'll give away. Hahahahaha. Not too hard to figure out.
