Invictus.

I WARNED YOU. It looks i’m not starting off with fashion but poetry. I just saw “Invictus” for the second time and the victorian poem with the same name by William Ernest Henley (1849–1903) always catches my mind. Like Morgan Freeman as Nelson Mandela, I’ll shorten it to these four beautiful verses:

EU AVISEI. Parece que não vou começar com moda mas com poesia. Acabei de ver o “invictus” pela segunda vez e o poema victoriano do mesmo nome, de William Ernest Henley (1849–1903) apanha-me sempre desprevenida. À semelhança do Morgan Freeman como Nelson Mandela, vou resumi-lo a estes quatro maravilhosos versos:

I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
