INVICTUS

Out of the pit that covers me,

Black as the night from pole to pole’

I thank whatever gods may be

For my unconquerable soul.

 

In the fell clutch of circumstance,

I have not winced or cried aloud,

Under the bludgeoning 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.
