The man in the glass

When you get what you want in your struggle for self

and the World makes you king for a day,

just go to the mirror and look at yourself

and see what the man has to say.

For it isnt 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.

You may be like jack horner and chisel a plum

and think your a wonderful guy.

But the man in the glass says your only a bum

If you cant look him straight in the eye.

Hes the fellow to please-never mind all of the rest,

For he’s with you clear to the end.

And you’ve passed your most dangerous, difficult test

If the man 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 the final reward will be heartache and tears

if you’ve cheated the man in the glass.
