Invictus

 
Hace tiempo vi "Invictus", película basada en el libro Playing The Enemy: Nelson Mandela and The Game that Made a Nation, que fue escrito por el inglés John Carlin. Hoy me ha venido a la mente el poema de William Ernest Henley que comparto contigo este domingo 23 de marzo.
 

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.
