I bargain with life for a penny

I bargain with life for a penny.

And life would pay no more

However I begged at evening

When I counted my scanty store.


For life is a just employer

He gives you what you ask.

But once you have set the wages,

Why you must bear the task.


I worked for a menial’s hire.

Only to learn dismayed,

That any wage I had asked of life

Life would have willingly paid.

Pulled From Napoleon Hill’s “Think and Grow Rich”
