    Leadership from WithinINVICTUS

    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 circumstanceI have not winced nor cried aloud.Under the bludgeonings of chanceMy head is bloody, but unbowed.

    Beyond this place of wrath and tearsLooms 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.
