A great poem.....

I was reading a book recently and came across a poem that I felt I had to share. It is...

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.

So the moral of the poem is not to sit around and take what life gives you but to go out and get the most out of life!!!! You have 70 - 80 years to go out and create your legacy. What are you doing to ensure that your name is never forgotten?
