Writer's Mission Statement - Poem by Max Reif

That grail
to deliver
unto humankind,

filled with
pure essense,

for those
who are
ready to drink;

that lamp,
lit with oil
of pure, refined
residue of experience,

burning brightly
to illumine
those who are
ready to see:

to deliver the goods,
and after that
my body can depart,
and I will still
be here, giving.
