The guy in the glass

I've found a wonderful poem , here at Infy. It was written in one of the handouts they gave us. This poem really touched me and its called "the guy in the glass".
I hope this poem will help you guys find a way of your choice ........


When you get what you want in your struggle for pelf
And the world makes you king for a day
Then go to the mirror and look at yourself
And see what that guy has to say.
For it isnt your mother, your father or wife
Whose judgement on you must pass
The fellow whose verdict counts most in your life
Is the guy staring back from the glass.

He's the fellow to please, never mind all the rest
For he's with you clean to the end
And you've passed your most dangerous and difficult test
If the guy in the glass is your friend.

You may be like Jack Horner and chisel a plum
And think you are a wonderful guy
But the guy in the glass says you are a bum
If you can't look him straight in the eye.
You may fool the whole world, down the pathwayof years
And get pats on the back as you pass
But the final reward will be heartaches and tears
If you've cheated the guy in the glass.
