I know the taste of blood
before it's on my tongue,
I know this is a race
that can never be won.
I know that the flood
will catch me in my fun.
And yet, when the shot fires,
I know that I will run.

Don't think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It's self conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can't try to do things. You simply must do things. -Ray Bradbury

I love this poem.  I think it really captures human stubborness and tenacity.  Knowing that you are going to lose/die but still fighting.  I LOVE IT!!!!
