Best Poem of Gert Strydom

Invictus (A Reply To William Ernest Henley)

While the night stretch black over me
and in the dark sky I see countless lights
burning high,
I thank the God that made me free
to choose which light to follow as a guide.

In dark circumstance and whatever fate brings,
destiny and chance do not conquer
and I still rise wiser
to life and its things

and my will remains free
to decide where my words
and actions belong
whether they are right or wrong
and to no human I bend a knee
and in all things I only answer to Him
who Captain’s me.

A Song For Minette

(After N. P. van Wyk Louw)

Every night she is with me
and when I do close my eyes
she is present to get kisses
to plead for caresses,
when she does carefully sneak in
and does depart before the day does start.
