Invictus

"If y'all was capable of getting it, I wouldn't mind explaining
If y'all was capable of getting it, it wouldn't need explaining"

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 horrors 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


—Invictus 1875
