Treasures discovered

We were tidying up, and Steve stumbled upon this poem he penned a few years ago.  He's since moved it back to the kitchen table every time I move it off the table, so I'm inferring that he would like it to be immortalized somehow.  While I work out that how, I'm putting it here so it doesn't get lost.  So, for your enjoyment......

An Opportunity
by Steve Hardin

Life is an opportunity
Some of us will seek
Some souls will surrender
Others may never settle
Is it really a journey
Or merely an opportunity
A chance to love
The joy of creating
The sadness of acceptance
The strength in integrity
Death is the real opportunity
May we all have the privilege of choice
The richness in embracing a new life
The magnificence of a new journey
