Monday Thought for your Soul

“The Power to THINK as you wish to think Is the only power over which you have absolute control.”

Two Poems by credit to N. Hill & Henley

You can never tell what a thought will do

In bringing you hate or love;

For thoughts are things, and their airy wings

Are swifter than a carrier dove.

They follow the law of the universe, –

Each thought creates it’s kind,

And the speed o’er the track to bring you back

Whatever went out from your mind.

—-oooOOooo—-

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 or 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.
