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
upon you whose judgement must pass.
The fellow whose verdict counts most in your life,
is the One Looking 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 difficult task,
if the Man in the Glass is your Friend.

You may fool the whole world down the pathway of life.
And get pats on your back as you pass.
But your Final Reward will be Sorrow and Tears ...
if you've Cheated the Man In The Glass.
