Tattoo Series: Part 3

“ I am a series of small victories and large defeats and I am as amazed as any other that I have gotten from there to here.” – Charles Bukowski .

Honestly, this is only a part of the quote, however, it’s my favorite part. I’ve had many small victories in my life but also many many large defeats that broke me down but those small victories helped hold me up. People look at me & constantly judge me. Wonder why I’m like the way I am & so forth. I have been through so much. I also joke that maybe one day I will write a book about my life. Who knows? Maybe I will, maybe I won’t. I don’t really want too however. I don’t want to have to relieve those memories, I don’t think that’s good for me. However, I’m happy where I am at it in life. Sometimes it even amazes me how I am able to overcome all the things I have been through.

I feel like a warrior, if I may say so myself.

I am constantly saying lately how if no one is proud of me ( TRUTH: my whole life i’ve been waiting for a parent to say “ i’m proud of you”) Then you know what I don’t care, I’m proud of MYSELF.

I hope whatever message the quote gives you, it’s a good one that is filled with hope. However, I will insert the full quote:

I sit here

drunk now.

I am

a series of

small victories

and large defeats

and I am as

amazed

as any other

that

I have gotten

from there to

here

without committing murder

or being

murdered;

without

having ended up in the

madhouse.

as I drink alone

again tonight

my soul despite all the past

agony

thanks all the gods

who were not

there

for me

then.

– Charles Bukowski
