Who has seen Invictus??

Recommended Posts

I know it's not a new movie, but I recently rented and watched Invictus. I was really touched... I just about cried throughout the whole movie!

I especially loved the poem. So here it is. I thought I'd share it.
And if you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it!

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.
