  • POEM: Invictus by William Ernest Henley (8/7/2010 4:47:00 PM)

    This has been favorite poem of mine since I first read it in high school, and that was a long long time ago. My life has had many challenges, from nearly losing eyesight in one eye as a child, an auto accident that left me with major injuries and my sister dead at 15, and most recently the untimely death of my all too young brother to the ravages of cancer. (That's the very short list.) For the past couple years I've struggled, like so many others now, with unemployment and the imminent threat of losing my humble home. At times. I feel paralyzed to do anything to help myself, and then I read this poem. It's defiance of failure, of being beaten, encourage me everytime and reminds me that I've never given up before, and cannot not allow myself to do that now. If I am going to be defeated, it will NOT be by my own doing. A strong mantra to always carry with you!
