A nice poem I like...
it's interesting why the rest of this post is gone... expecially when I live life by the poem. Oh well.
When you get what you want in the struggle for self
And the world makes you King for a day
Then go to the mirror and look at yourself
And see what this guy has to say.
For it isn't the man's father, or mother, or wife
Who's judgement upon him must pass
The feller who's verdict counts most in his life
Is the guy starring back from the glass.
He's the feller to please, never mind the rest,
FOR HE'S WITH YOU CLEAR UP TO THE END.
And you've passed your most dangerous, difficult test
If the guy in the glass is your friend.
You may be like Jack Horner and chisel a plum,
And think your a wonderful guy,
But that man in the glass says your a bum,
If you can't look him straight in the eye.
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 heartaches or tears,
If you've cheated the guy in the glass.
