"Victus" By M. Taha Effendi (Didactic) Amidst the gloom of night's dark shroud, lurks Death in far corners of the shade. To vanquish my fears to God I bowed, And death shall find me... unafraid. Amidst this vale of tears and pain, my heart in life's robbed solace bled. God gave me strength to stand again, I found peace in His words I read. In pleasures and crime my life is spent, with sins the wretched soul is weighed. But God's love taught me to repent, He pursued me everytime I strayed. It matters not how dark the past, how much the evil takes its toll. Darkness thrives but never shall last, The Savior redeems the conquered soul. (Inspired by "Invictus" by William Ernest Henley)

    Amazingly beautiful Poem blended with painful truths of life, but you have very beautifully searched Peach amid the deafening noises of earthly attractions. It is really a very beautiful Poem enlightening the path, which leads towards God. Great write my friend and many thanks for your kind comments on my Poem 'Love in a Beauty Fair'. I have made a small change in the last stanza of the Song. Hope you would find it more soothing. Love and best wishes..Ravindra..Taha Effendi

    I had a thought the other day, if you are a have hope. In times of hardship, death etc. you still have hope of seeing your loved ones again and that God is with you through the trial and just hope that things will be ok. come what may. Well you penned this so well I was hoping to inspire you.
