God handed me a gift

God handed me a gift. I took it & asked what it was.
He said, "It's a gift. The best gift you could ever get."
I looked at the wrapping & was not impressed. I asked, "What is this wrapped with?"
He said, "Trials & tribulations. Challenges & feats. Good times & bad times."
I replied, "Really? No thank you."
He said, "It's worth it, I promise."
I conseeded & said "Ok, here it goes".
I started unwrapping the gift.
I saw trials & tribulations.
I faced challenges & feats.
I felt good times & bad times.
I cried & I laughed. I almost died a few times.
Every new layer I took off was a step deeper & deeper. Closer intro the inferno.
In the end, I discovered my gift.
The gift is me.
