and achieving contentment in your life…
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 that man has to say.
For it isn’t your father, or mother, or wife
Whose judgment you have to 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, right up to the end
And you’ve passed your most difficult test in this world, If the man in the glass is your friend.
You may fool the whole world down the pathway of life 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.
