Invictus

Another poem that was given to patients at my father's client in Houston, Texas in the early 1960s.

Invictus
 
By William Ernest Henley
 
 

Out of the night that covers me, black as a pit from pole to pole;

I thank whatever gods may be, for my unconquerable soul.

 

In the fell clutch of circumstances, 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 punishment the scroll.

I am master of my fate; I am captain of my soul.
