    Poem Commentary

    Because Life kicks you down, but you can never quit.

    The Warriors Ethos


    You gotta get up

    Don’t you dare quit on yourself

    There isn’t much to say, but to stay in the fight don’t take much

    The adage is that it ain’t the size of the dog in the fight;

    It’s the size of the fight in the dog

    You gotta want it

    All it takes is Heart and Fire

    Don’t quit, no matter how much you hurt

    No matter how much blood pours from your wound, you better not ever quit

    Fight twice as hard when you bleed

    Let your tears fall when you have no choice, but don’t let them see you sweat

    Go for yours in the race of life

    It’s called Heart and Fire

    Let it burn in your eyes and feel your adrenaline pump

    Your body gets weak, and your mind wants to you give it up

    But dig deep into your soul

    Feel that passion for why you do the job, why you live and why you’ll survive

    Yes baby, it’s all about heart and fire

    Fire is the drive to get you going, Heart is your motivation

    Even to your dying breath, if you want it, you can do anything

    Go get yours, and do all you can do in this life

    Let that inferno well up in you, and go for the win

    Because there is nothing like a warriors of Ethos

    I will always place the mission first

    I will never accept defeat

    I will never quit

    I will never leave a fallen comrade


    And this is backed by the solid truth

    You gotta go for it

    You gotta have Heart and Fire

    Life isn’t about how you hard you get hit, but how well you can push through the pain

    Make sure whenever you wake, wherever you go

    That you never quit,

    That you never accept defeat

    And that you push with heart and fire in your eyes.

    Hell yeah. Sometimes you are all you got. If you quit on yourself, who gonna pull you up? This line [You gotta want it] speaks the volume to me. I remember someone I use to work out with years ago use to say that it don't matter how much you can fight, or how many moves you master, or how great your technique is, if you don't WANT it, NONE of it will be effective. That want, that passion that this poem is screaming. That feeling can make one realize there was something in you all along that you never knew existed. Seems you found it man. Enjoyed the read.

    Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.

    T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
