The man in the glass


Gone fishing
When you get what you want in your struggle for gain,
And the world makes you king for a day,
Just go to the mirror and look at your self
And see what that man has to say.

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

He's the one you must satisfy beyond all the rest
For he's with you right up till the end
And you have passed your most difficult test,
If the man in the glass is your friend.

You may fool the whole world down your 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 man in the glass.
Oh Karin that is so good
we need to lose weight for us
not for anyone else jus us.
I have always said that if I cheat on a diet and pretend
that I have not cheated the only one I am cheating is me.
How right the words of this poem or
Thanks for a great post
That is a fantastic poem, and means so much to me. Will print it out and keep in my bag I think. Very true and one I won't be using on this journey
It really rang some great big bells for me too. Imagine Big Ben and double it :eek:
