  15. 15. Poem Invictus<br />Out of the night that covers me,Black as the pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods made meFor my unconquerable soul.<br />In the fell clutch of circumstanceI have not winced nor cried aloud.Under the bludgeoning of chanceMy head is bloody, but unbowed.<br />Beyond this place of wrath and tearsLooms but the Horror of the shade,And yet the menace of the yearsFinds, and shall find me unafraid.<br />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.<br />
