A Journey into the Mirror Final Part

For the past few days, we have shared pieces of a poem, "The Guy in the Glass" by Dale Wimbrow.

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

who judgment upon you must pass

The fellow whose verdict counts the most in your life

is the one staring back from the glass

Some people may think you a straight-shooting chum

and call you a wonderful guy

But the guy in the glass says you're only a bum

if you can't look him straight in the eye

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 difficult test

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 pass

But your final reward will be heartaches and

tears if you've cheated the man in the glass.

The moral of the story is, make sure you take care of yourself and do what you have to, to make yourself happy. In the end, it'll just be you and the person in the mirror looking at each other one last time.
