Een prachtig gedicht van Dale Winbrow wat ik op de terugweg uit Praag in het vliegtuig vond, en wat ik jullie niet wil onthouden:

The man in the Glass.

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

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

Some people may think you a straight-shooting chum,
And call you a wonderful guy,
But the man in glass says you’re only a bum,
If you can’t look him straight in the eye.

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

You may fool the whole world down the pathway of life,
And get pats on the back as you pass,
But your final reward will be heartaches and tears,
If you’ve cheated the man in the glass.

Dale Wimbrow.
