My favourite success poems

by Mwila Musumali

Here are two poems I thought to pass on, one I think you have already its from Napoleon Hill's book - Think and Grow rich ( my small bible!).

" 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 willingly paid"

The second one is,

"The heights, by great men
reached and kept,
were not attained
by sudden flight.

But they, while their
companions slept,
were toiling upward
in the night."
