Nobody Can Save You But Yourself

nobody can save you but
yourself
and you’re worth saving.
it’s a war not easily won
but if anything is worth winning then
this is it

think about it
think about saving your self
your spiritual self
your gut self
your singing magical self and
your beautiful self
save it

don’t join the dead-in-spirit
maintain your self
with humor and grace
and finally
if necessary
wager your life as you struggle,
damn the odds, damn
the price

nobody can save you but yourself

- Bukowski
