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 judgment upon you must pass,
The fellow whose verdict counts most in your life
Is the one staring back from the glass.

Some people might think you're a straight-shootin' chum
And call you a wonderful guy.
But the man in glass says your're only a bum
If you can't look him straight in the eye.

He's the fellow to please, never mnid all the rest,
For he's with you clear to the end,
And you'vepassed your most dangerous test
If the guy in the glass is your friend.

You may fool the whole world down the pathway of years
And get pats on the back as you pass,
But your final reward will be the heartach and tears
If you cheated the man in the glass.
