Poem:The Wages of Life

By Napoleon Hill

 I bargained with life for a penny

And life would pay no more,
However I  begged that evening,

When I counted my scanty store
For life is a just employer,
Life 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 could have asked of life,
Life would have willingly paid
