Looms but the Horror of the shade

"Beyond this place of wrath and tear, looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years, finds and shall find me unafraid."

And this verse from 'Invictus', William Ernest Henley really breaks everything down for me.

Horror, fear, insecurity, confusion are just shades and illusions at the end of the day, stopping us, making obstacles for us, but at the end of the day, they really mean nothing.

After all, there are nothing but shades and fears in far off times and futures, nothing physical, and nothing that the human spirit can't beat.

Hope comes eventually when you fight to keep a strong hold on it.
