Let me share with you the poem which was highlighted in the movie, Invictus. I have known the name of Nelson Mandela before, but did not pay much attention to his works and what he actually did. After watching the movie, Invictus, I have understood and have the greatest respect for Nelson Mandela. Now I would really want to know more about him and make him one of my mentors in life.

I just pray that the Philippines would have such kind of leader in the near future and will be such great inspiration to the Filipinos.


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.

William Ernest Henley
