Happy April 15!
Today’s poem is by William Ernest Henley. A poem inspired after he had one of his legs amputated below his knee at the age of 12. Made further famous, as it was Nelson Mandela’s favorite poem. And which helped him to remain strong while imprisoned for 27 years.
To anyone who has ever felt oppressed. Who has met adversity and found their path and dreams blocked by forces outside their control. So to remember not to bow your head in defeat. Or let the weight of your burdens crush you and to keep hope alive, I dedicate to you Invictus.
