Invictus

09 Apr

If there is any poem anywhere that i believe is a worthy read, this is it. Everytime i read it, or hear the word ‘Invictus’ or the poem’s legendary conclusion, i simply cant hold my mind back from wandering on cloud nine. It holds so much power… Please enjoy it with me.

**********************************
Invictus
BY WILLIAM ERNEST HENLEY
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.

Take time to think about its contents…especially that last verse.
You indeed are the master of your own fate. Follow this thought train to a logical end. If you do, you’ll learn something profound. I’ll be writing on it soon enough but please give that line some thought.

And till then, i remain @OverlordNoni do follow me on twitter
