WILLIAM HENLEY “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.

<saut1>

In the fell clutch of circumstance

In the fell clutch of circumstance

Under the bludgeonings of chance

My head is bloody, but unbow’d.

<saut2>

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.

<saut3>

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.
