By William Ernest Henley (1849-1903)
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.
First They Came.....
By Martin Niemöller (1892-1984)
......they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists, I did not speak out—
Because I was not a trade unionist
Then they came for the teacher, and I did not speak out-
Because I was not a teacher.
Then they came for the Jew, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—
by then, there was no one left to speak for me.
