Invictus is the Latin for 'unconquerable' and I have always loved this short Victorian poem by the English poet William Ernest Henley, the first and last verse of which I have used for this t shirt design and illustrated with a ship in full sail. The design is hand printed on an organic t shirt in vegan-friendly inks.
I am listing it as white on dark t shirts but I can also print in black on lighter colours although might have to charge a little more to buy in a t shirt for a special order, so please message me if there was another colour you wanted and I can let you know how much it will cost. :-)
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find me, unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul
I hand print to order so please allow up to a couple of weeks for the magic to happen, although if you are in a particular hurry please inquire before ordering and if I have the t shirt in stock I will do my best to get the order printed asap for you.
Above all..be nice..because nasty people get their orders cancelled. :-)
