Best Poem of Gert Strydom

Invictus (A Reply To William Ernest Henley)

While the night stretch black over me
and in the dark sky I see countless lights
burning high,
I thank the God that made me free
to choose which light to follow as a guide.

In dark circumstance and whatever fate brings,
destiny and chance do not conquer
and I still rise wiser
to life and its things

and my will remains free
to decide where my words
and actions belong
whether they are right or wrong
and to no human I bend a knee
and in all things I only answer to Him
who Captain’s me.

[References: Invictus by William Ernest ...

As A Mere Human Being

As a mere human being my life is but a moment
in the gear-work of eternity
and if I do not love others,
have an intimate relationship with someone
then everything means but nothing
even if every marital relationship does fail

and if I do not act with humanity
with utterly great mercy
