My Morning Cup Of Solitude

Wednesday, July 23, 2014



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

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

She's the person to please, never mind all the rest.
For she's with you clear up to the end,
And you've passed the 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 the heartaches and tears
If you've cheated the girl in the glass.

~ Dale Wimbrow
