To go or to stay

After Philippians 1:18-26

What a choice: to go on
to the end, the reward,
grasping the promised
prize, and embrace 
the relief of the end
of travail; or to stay,
continuing to work,
to labor, to build up.
Both options offer
rewards, one eternal
and one earthly for now,
and I might prefer one
over the other, but 
I know the choice
Is not mine.
