I mentioned about 2 poems in my last post in this category ..
this is the 2nd poem which i got from magazine..
Thought of sharing it here on my blog….
Really a beautiful one…………..
I bargained 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 paid.
