Transcript of English: Poem-Invictus

Poem: Invictus Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole, BLACK PEOPLE Dark I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul. SOUL In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud. Not their fault Never shown weakness Cruel 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, Anger Capital= name Being Black or different skin tone/
Night Strong throughout everything And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid. Long
Time Courage and strength It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll very violent/ harsh they over power him like kings yet he does not fall into trap Referencing" walking the straight and narrow"
i.e. doesn't matter how nice you are Or how bad you've been Evil Seen as evil Not giving up By Alisha Ricks Analysis by Jessica Anderson I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul Repetition In control Powerful What does the poem tell about courage? I believe this poem tells a lot about
courage and you can learn a lot about
courage from this poem.This poem shows
that even through torture and circumstance.
If you have courage you will not be
overpowered. "In the fell clutch of circumstance, I have not winced nor cried aloud." It also means if you are in control of how you feel, you will have more courage to
fight through. The violent words like "bludgenings," "bloddy," "Wrath," and "Menace," all show that you must have courage to survive these violent times.
This poem has strong and effective words to show these rough times for this person. What do you personally think about courage? I believe courage is a gift that some people are born with and others learn to have. When you are courageous you can get a lot done in life. You can make new friends, find job's, stand up to bully's, try new things and speak in public. Courage is also like a muscle. As you use it, it becomes stronger and you become more and more courageous. Leaders are courageous because a leader can not be shy to lead anything. they have to be bold and "courageous." Courage is a powerful thing that everyone should use in life. Without courage, the world would be full of shy hungry and dead people. A time when you were courageous. When i was 10 years old, my bullying was spiked to a high level.
It got to a point where the only reason i went to school was i didn't want to get a bad grade. One day one of the kids started calling me names that wern't nice. Since i hadn't stood up for myself, instead of doing the more courageous thing by telling the teacher. I took the easy way out and called him names. That backfired on me when everyone then started calling me names. I, of course wanted to sink into a black, dark pit and die. I had realized the best thing to do is to do the right thing and tell instead of being the bully myself. Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!
