This Offer Had Been There And Granted - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

When burdens begin to lift,
Up off the carrier's shoulders.
A fresh smell of life,
Is noticed to have a wonderful and sparkling 'taste'.

Only then does one realize,
A magnificence has been wasted.
But never is it too late...
To participate without hesitation.

This offer had been there and granted,
By invitation from God.
Awaiting for one to finish,
An internal debate.
To accept and realize,
A deserving had already been decided.
