There's a great little poem that's read in the movie The Grey with actor Liam Neeson.  
It was written by director/writer Joe Carnahan.

--- Into the Fray ---

Once more into the fray
Into the last good fight I'll ever know
Live or die on this day
Live or die on this day

 

For me, it became a special movie when this bit was added.

I bet the movie was built around the poem actually. "The Grey", "the fray"?
First he was going to kill himself, then decides to fight for it -" the last good fight I'll ever know". His change of heart and his struggle - great

Isn't the poem a bit nihilistic?  I loved the film myself, mostly for the restraint with which the writers held in use of C.G.I.'s, and thus forcing them to built meticulously-drawn characters who move the plot by their words and acts, not the next special effect.  About the only one that I can remember was the wolves' eyes peering out from the darkness at the edge of an encampment, one the eeriest things that could be imagined.  And Mr. Neeson's acting?  That man is just possibly the most underrated star in the galaxy.
