    The Man In The Mirror

    If you get what you want in your struggle for self
    And the world makes you king for a day
    Then go to the mirror and look at yourself
    And see what that man has to say

    For it isn't a man's father, mother or wife
    Whose judgement upon him must pass
    The fellow whose verdict counts most in his life
    Is the man staring back from the glass

    He's the fellow to please, never mind 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 can fool the whole world down the pathway of years
    And get pats on the back as you pass
    But your final reward wil be heartache and tears
    If you've cheated the man in the glass

    -- A convict; found on the walls of his cell

    Thank You

    I have read a lot of poems, but this one has been the only one that has actually moved me. All of these other poets use all of that fancy language, and it makes it hard to understand. this one just flows through the head. I love this poem. Thank you very much for posting this. :clap3:
