Salman Javid

The Price

Every chattel has a price,
Every moment has its too;
There is a price of a bargain,
A price for every sale;
Sacrifice too has its price,
There is a price of every
Benefaction, sheep and the goat;
Mortal men have their price,
While the immortals have none;
The victim of fortune is the one,
Whose price is yet to be determined;
There is a price of every
Relations, friend and the foe,
But not of thy soul!
