"Beat the rookie with the Veteran"

I am the captain of my soul...

There's a new blog for McCain's victory. I especially like the post on Invictus. Going over these words repeatedly helped Sen. McCain in some of his dark days as a PoW.

Here is the poem in it's entirety:

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.
