THE MAN IN THE MIRROR

If 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

Who judgement upon you must pass,

The fellow whose verdict counts most in your life

Is the one staring back from the glass.

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

For he’s with you clear upto 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 your final reward will be heartache and tears

If you’ve cheated the man in the glass
