|No not really, even though he had a song called, "Man in the Mirror" but at least it got you to check this out. Think about this after reading it.|
~~~~ The Man in the Glass ~~~~
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 man has to say
For it isn't your father or mother or wife
Whose judgment upon you must pass
The fellow whose verdict counts most in your life
Is the one staring back from the glass
You may be like Jack Horner and chisel a plum
And think you're a wonderful guy.
But the man in the glass says you're only a bum
If you can't look him straight in the eye.
He's the fellow to please - never mind all the rest,
For he's with you clear to the end.
And you've passed your most dangerous, difficult test
If the man 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 man in the glass.
- Dale Wimbrow, 1895-1954

|Awesome Lyrics. Worthy of reading everyday before starting the day. Believe in yourself, expect great things and know that God in you wants to shine through you, so let him shine. God bless,|
