about

An inspiring and moving poem, 'Invictus', set to music and composed in honor of Nelson Mandela. This is one of my favourite pieces I have created so far. Click here to watch the video that my son created for 'Invictus': www.elikamahony.com/2014/01/01/video-for-invictus/

lyrics

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
