The Man in Mirror TFD Nit Agartala

When you get what you want

In struggle for yourself

And the world makes you king of the day

Then go to the mirror and look at yourself

And see what the man has to say


For it isn’t the man’s father, mother or wife

Whose judgement upon him must pass

The fellow whose verdict counts most in his life

Is the man starting back from the glass


He’s the fellow to please ,never mind all the lust

For he’s with you clear upto the end.

And you have passed your most dangerous, dangerous test

If the man in the glass is your friend.


You can feel the whole world down the pathway for years

And get paths on the back as you pass

But your final reward will be heartache and tears

If you cheated the man in the glass.
