Invictus - Poem by 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 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.

    - INVICTUS - (ENGLISH / ITALIAN) :
    ______________________________

    Out of the night that covers me,
    - - Dal profondo della notte che mi avvolge,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    - - nero come un pozzo da un polo a un altro,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    - - ringrazio qualunque dio possa esistere
    For my unconquerable soul.
    - - per la mia anima inespugnabile.

    In the fell clutch of circumstance
    - - Nella feroce morsa delle circostanze
    I have not winced nor cried aloud.
    - - non mi sono tirato indietro nè ho gridato forte.
    Under the bludgeonings of chance
    - - Sotto ai colpi d’ascia della sorte
    My head is bloody, but unbowed.
    - - il mio capo è sanguinante ma indomito.

    Beyond this place of wrath and tears
    - - Oltre questo luogo di collera e lacrime
    Looms but the Horror of the shade,
    - - incombe solo l’orrore delle ombre,
    And yet the menace of the years
    - - eppure la minaccia degli anni
    Finds and shall find me unafraid.
    - - trova, e mi troverà senza paura.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    - - Non importa quanto sia stretta la porta,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    - - quanto piena di punizioni la pergamena,
    I am the master of my fate:
    - - io sono padrone del mio destino:
    I am the captain of my soul.
    - - io sono capitano della mia anima.
