The Girl in the Glass

Thought I would share this poem with you.

The Girl in the Glass!!!

When you get what you want in your struggle for self,
And the world makes you queen for a day,
Just go to the mirror and look at yourself,
And see what that girl has to say.

For it isn't your father or mother or friends,
Whose judgment upon you must pass,
The girl whose verdict counts most in your life,
Is the one staring back from the glass.

She's the one to please---never mind all the rest,
For she's with you clear to the end,
And you've passed your most dangerous difficult test,
If the girl 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 girl in the glass!!!

Thanks, Donna.

The counterpart to MJ's.."The Man in the Mirror"...maybe.

Reminds also of the beautiful saying I have on my 3 year token I carry with me in my

purse.."To Thine Own Self be True."

I love that poem! I do now love the person looking back at me from the mirror, and w/o sobriety I couldn't even come close to saying that.
