I am Indeed Captain on my ship named Invictus

I escape into a dreary

ponder of the night

not under any new narcotic

but one less.

A semi sober mind and life

afresh to bring my

word to soul.

I am captain now,

Yes certain of my soul once

again.

What saved me were these

few words, even

my own.

Did words not save us from 

the beasts?

Are our words not how truth

must be sung.
