Recalling Invictus

Of late, I've found myself recalling lines from "Invictus" (the "I'm the captain of my soul poem) by William Ernest Henley.

For me it resonates most for its sheer tone of defiance as I can apply it day to day life:

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

I hope I can always be that strong.
