Invictus is a Latin word,and means unbeaten, unconquered, unvanquished. Its the name of a movie starring Morgan Freeman, about the 1995 Rugby World Cup. This was in post apartheid South Africa, and won Academy nominations. It also happens to be one of my favourite poems by William Ernest Henley.
During this holy month of Ramadan, where Muslims all over the world share a commitment to become better people, to conquer their vices and emerge from a month of abstaining from food and drink from dawn to dusk, a better person than when they started. I reacquainted myself with the message of the poem, I am truly Captain of my Soul. I am responsible for what I do, God has given me guidelines.
