It is only painOn your feet, soldier, up once again
Only dogs die lying down
And we won't be dogs to others,
cuffed and collared
no, we'll learn to howl like wolves do.
On your feet, now,
it's all in vain,
to whine and to cry out,
this is only pain:
Stuck on your skin like dirt and dust.
Your spine will twist under all this,
love and other earthly things
But never break, never bend:
No one remembers those
who quietly bowed their heads.
You'll get by, if it's with teeth and nails
drag yourself from the deep
Only dogs die in the shadows.
Those who held you down on your knees
With your jaw broken and tongue tied:
all of them will be dust
with the time.
And your bruises will heal
All the scabs will peel
Your dreams will all wake up
And your shadows take form.
So once more unto the breach,
It will pass like spring, thirst and rain
So stand up now,
it is only pain.

It can be found in multiple mediums such as books, movies, comics, video games, etc. We even engage in dialogue daily without even thinking.
