    • POEM: Invictus by William Ernest Henley (2/12/2010 1:15:00 PM)

      Some say faith is believing on what that cannot be seen, others say it replaces ignorance. Be that as it may, it forms the different religions we have in this world. What I never understand is why man always pays much detail on what that divides than unites. Why should colour, religion or tribe be the basis of judgement.
      From my prospective, the definition of Henley's 'unconquerable soul' means a soul free from all these vices. A soul free from racial and religious prejudice. And the last two lines were just the icing to the cake.
      This poem admits to the reality of the various world atrocities and helps us to move on and push hard even when nothing seems to make sense. I believe his words will be a lantern to my everyday life as a student abroad in India and a good source of inspiration to all who read it. Viva la Henley!
