    Last week Companero alilalama kujisikia mnyonge katika kila nyanja. Naomba kui-dedicate poem hii ya Invictus kwake, na kwa yeyote yule anayejisikia mnyonge(pamoja nami) weekend hii .

    Background: This poem was originally written by Henley, a victim to Tuberculosis of the bones at age 12. Despite amputation of his leg below the knee, led an active life until his death at the age of 53 but also passed Oxford local exam.

    Nelson Mandela, while in prison read this poem everyday from his cell (he was denied socialisation and visitation for most of his jail time.) May this poem keep you going everytime you feel like giving up on yourself, coz that is the last thing you can do before you die.

    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.

    I don't want to be the captain of my soul
    Namuachia yule mmoja aliyeilipia!

    Katika watu vichaa, nadhani Tim Mcveigh was one of them. Hakutaka ku-repent kabisa mpaka dakika ya mwisho wa uhai wake!.

    Kinachonishangaza mimi ni kwa nini gulf war veteran aende kuua kwao. was it a revenge to his own govt?
    Babu, i decide to be a captain of my soul lakini aliyeniumba ndo compass(dira??). Manake hali ilivyo sasa, u may find yourself letting the system kill your brother man (Bob Marley)!

    Asante sana! I saw the movie - it was great! In a sense I agree with Mwanakijiji but he misses one point - being captain/master may simply mean being in control of the choices you make in life including the choice of having a bigger Master/Captain, that is God. I thank whatever God may give me. Amen!
