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 a mirror and look at yourself,
And see what THAT woman has to say.

For it isn't your husband or friend
Who judgement upon you must pass;
The woman whose verdict counts most in the end
Is the one staring back from the glass.

Some people may think you a straight-shootin' chum
And call you a person of place
But the woman in the glass says you're only a bum
If you can't look her straight in the face.

She's the woman to please, never mind all the rest
For she's 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've cheated the woman in the glass.


Years ago I encouraged a friend to go to a AA meeting for his addiction to alcohol, and
when the meeting was over I found this poem there. ~Anna~
