INVICTUS : The Poem

Ini dia puisi INVICTUS versi lengkapnya…

Denger-denger ini puisi kesukaan NELSON MANDELA lo, waktu dia dipenjara 30 tahun itu…

Kekuatan katanya memang tiada tara ya?

 

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)

Masih terbayang-bayang…

Nelson Mandela dipenjara selama 30 tahun. Keluar dari penjara, dia siap memaafkan orang-orang yang memenjarakannya. KOndisi mentalnya super sehat, sampai tidak ada dendam di hatinya. Bahkan dia langsung memimpin bangsanya. Dan fokusnya tetap pada rakyatnya.

OooooooooooooooooooO
