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 one has to say.
For it isn’t your father, or mother, or wife
Whose judgment upon you must pass
The person whose verdict counts most in your life
Is the one staring back from the glass.
That's the one to please – never mind all the rest
For that person's with you, clear to the end
And you’ve passed your most difficult, dangerous test
If the one in the glass is your friend.
You may 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 one in the glass.
