Poem of the day: invictus

InvictusBy William Ernest Henley 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 andContinue reading “Poem of the day: invictus”

Human family; poem of the day

Human FamilyBy Maya Angelou I note the obvious differencesin the human family.Some of us are serious,some thrive on comedy.Some declare their lives are livedas true profundity,and others claim they really livethe real reality.The variety of our skin tonescan confuse, bemuse, delight,brown and pink and beige and purple,tan and blue and white.I’ve sailed upon the sevenContinue reading “Human family; poem of the day”

Solitude

Solitide By Ella Wheeler Wilcox Laugh, and the world laughs with you; Weep, and you weep alone;For the sad old earth must borrow its mirth, But has trouble enough of its own.Sing, and the hills will answer; Sigh, it is lost on the air;The echoes bound to a joyful sound, But shrink from voicing care.Rejoice,Continue reading “Solitude”
