The Man in the Mirror


Courtesy of peoplestuff from Phil Evans:

The Man in the Mirror


When you get what you want in your struggle for self, and the world makes you King for the day;
Then go to the mirror and look at yourself, and see what that man has to say.

For it isn't a man's father, mother or wife whose judgement upon him must pass; The fellow whose verdict counts most in this life, is the man staring back from the glass.

He's the fellow to please, never mind all the rest, for he's with you clear up to the end; And you've passed your most dangerous and difficult test if the man in the glass is your friend.

You can 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
