    Since I won’t be much longer on the Earth,
    I should think now about my legacy,
    What I’ll have done that proves of any worth
    To serve the uses of posterity.

    What may I say or do to wise us up,
    Accomplishing our species’ sapience,
    As far from maturation as a pup,
    Who have through painful ages proved so dense?

    Though sciences will help to set us straight
    Where blinded faith has led us into error,
    There’s something in the spiritual estate
    To guide the lost and wandering wayfarer.

        I think my task is to discern that news
        And in my verse disseminate such views.
