INVICTUS by William Ernest Henley (1849–1903)


This piece of literature inspIred and changed a man’s life, transforming his beliefs, fears and weakness to strength even in the moment when nothing, including life, matters most.
I do not know your condition right now, but I am pretty sure you know the name “Dr. Nelson Madiba Mandela” of The Republic of South Africa.
This written words to his existence changed his life, I hope it changes your today, happy reading…

Invictus

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.
