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.”
I have this poem on the wall next to my bed
so that I remind myself daily to ask for MORE.
YOU deserve MORE and so does YOUR CHILD!
