"The Man in the Glass"
When you reach your goal in the world of sports
and you've worked the big game that day,
just go to the mirror and look at yourself
and see what the man has to say.
For it isn't your family or friends or the coaches
when judgement upon you must pass;
The fellow whose verdict counts in your life
is the one staring back from the glass.
You may fool all the world down the avenue of years
and get pats on the back as you pass,
but your only reward will be remorse and regret,
if you have cheated the man in the glass.
