Back to Blogging...

Yes, I'm back after a pretty long hiatus. My heartfelt apologies to all my readers and followers for not posting for so long and more so, those readers who left comments on my poems and I couldn't follow-up with them to express my gratitude. I have been busy with my studies and some other personal problems but now I'm back and hopefully will be posting more regularly :)

I would like to conclude by quoting this inspirational poem by William Ernest Henley which shall hopefully inspire me to come up with some meaningful poetry in the future :)

Invictus



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 circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms 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.
