THOUGHT OF THE DAY-24th June 2013



Dear valued visitor,

Beginning from today, after each blog post I’ll be giving you a thought for the day. Today’s thought for the day is a poem:

THE GUY IN THE MIRROR

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

For it isn’t your mother, your father or wife
Whose judgement on you must pass.
The fellow whose verdict counts most in your life
Is the guy staring back from the glass.

He’s the fellow to please, never mind all the rest.
For he’s with you clean to the end;
And you’ve passed your most dangerous
and difficult test
If the guy in the glass is your friend. 

You may be like Jack Homer and chisel a plum
And think you are a wonderful guy,
But the guy in the glass says you are a bum
If you can’t look him straight in the eye.

You may fool the whole world—
down the pathway of years
And get pats on the back as you pass;
But the final reward will be heartaches and tears
IF YOU’VE CHEATED THE GUY IN THE GLASS.
