Help identify a poem

Posted by Mack Kolb on September 05, 2002

I am trying to find a poem that I vaguely remember memorizing in high school years ago. I want to send it to my daughter in college. The lines I can recall go something like:

"It matters not how straight the path, how charred with punishment the scroll, I am the master of my destiny, captain of my fate."

Can anyone help me find this poem?
