April is National Poetry Month, and although I am not a faithful reader of poetry, I do have my favorite poets and poems. During the month of April, I will be posting some of those here on the blog, for everyone’s reading enjoyment.
“Invictus” has been my favorite poem for around twenty years now; I don’t remember how old I was when I first read it, but it was sometime during high school. I immediately fell in love with Henley’s words and the way they made me feel. The words of “Invictus” have sustained me throughout some of the toughest times in my life, and to this day I feel empowered whenever I read them.
So without further ado…
Do you have a favorite poem? Is there a poem that makes you feel a certain way whenever you read it?
