Unconquerable and Undefeated

Invictus is a Latin word that means unconquerable or undefeated. The poem is filled with powerful words that express perseverance in challenging times.

I love this. It's the only way to get through life, don't you think?

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.

My book, Redeemed,

A Memoir of a Stolen Childhood will be published June 25, 2024.
