I saw a blog entry this morning with this poem titled The Girl in the Glass and Anonymous for the author. I liked it and wanted to post it, but thought I would Google it and make sure the poem was correct and all. Found it is actually called The Woman in the Glass and the author's name. I thought this was a good read and something to think about on this Monday made for motivation. Enjoy!
The Woman 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 woman has to say.
For it isn't your father or mother or child whose judgment upon you must pass.... the person whose verdict counts most in your life is the one staring back from the glass.
Some people may think you're a straight shooting chum and call you a wonderful girl, but the woman in the glass says you're only a bum if you can't look her straight in the eyes.
She's the person to please, never mind all the rest, for she is with you clear up to the end.. and you've passed your most dangerous, difficult test if the woman 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 heartaches and tears If you cheated the woman in the glass.
