The Man In The Glass

Author Unknown

When you get what you want in your struggle for self

And the world makes you King for a day

Just go to a mirror and look at yourself

And see what that man has to say.

For it isn’t your father or mother or wife

Whose judgement upon you must pass,

The fellow whose verdict counts most in your life

Is the one staring back from the glass.

Some people may think you a straight-shootin’ chum

And call you a wonderful guy

But the man in the glass says you’re only a bum

If you can’t look him straight in the eye.

He’s the fellow to please, never mind all the rest

For he’s with you clear up to the end

And you have passed your most difficult test

If the man in the glass is your friend.

You may fool the world down the pathway of life

And get pats on your back as you pass

But your final reward will be heartache and tears

If you’ve cheated the man in the glass.
