(Day #7) All That’s Inspirational

(Day #7) THE DAILY PASSION PROMPT: 39 DAYS. 39 QUESTIONS. 39 PATHWAYS TO PASSION..Who inspires you? Who do you look up to?Who are your mentors? And Why?

Actions inspire me not the people, for the simple reason that I don’t like idolizing people.
Their actions speak louder than words. In short what inspires me is a mash up of various qualities put together. Courage,frankness,humor — all those inspire me.Hence, instead of a person I’m gonna list out things that I am inspired by , here it goes…

  • Here’s a poem that’s truly inspirational,it’s my favourite too..
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.
— Charles Bukowski
