Invictus The title of a short Victorian poem; latin for “unconquered”

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.

William Ernest Henley, 1875
