My Invictus...

Where emotional night is never ending
Where darkness stretches through halls.
I am more than grateful that
there is calm in my soul.

Through circumstance, not choice
for those I love despair abounds
I will weep for spirit lost, joy felt
I hold my head though beaten around.

This place where tears and frustration have been shed
finds me hopeful for a future to come
where love has been lost and anger arisen
I will not succumb

It matters not the direction we go
how difficult the road...
I am the master of my fate
I am the captain of my soul

~Shannon Mashinchi (2013)
