01/10.....Acceptance - Poem by sacred garden


(The only person on earth you need to be accepted by is yourself.)

When you get what you want in the struggle for the self
And the world makes you king and queen for the day,
Just go to a mirror and look at yourself,
And see what that person has to say!
For it isn't your father, mother, friend or host,
Whose judgement upon you must pass;
The person whose verdict counts the most

Is the one staring from the glass.
Some may think you are a wonderful chum,
And call you as radiant as the sun;

But if the person in the mirror says you're dumb,
And you can't look him in the eye - you're done.
He is the one to please, never mind the rest,
For he will be with you until the end,
And you will have passed your most difficult test
If the person in the mirror becomes your friend.

You may fool the whole world along the years,
And get pats on your back as the ages you pass,
But your final reward will be hell and tears,
If you've cheated the person in the glass.
