Clarity is something that I savored,
Lending reason to a worthy cause.
An uncommitted life is not worth living,
Relinquishing the claims for the rewards,
Embracing the illusions of the favored.

Remember me as one who never wavered,
Obeying stubbornly the highest laws,
Defending what had little chance of winning,
Not caring for the consequence, or giving
Even one brief glance at waiting jaws,
Yet loving well the world for which I labored.
