Do It Anyway

I found this poem today. Someone read it in church years ago and I kept it. I don't know what the title is, but it was apparently written by Mother Teresa.

People are often

unreasonable and self-centered.

Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind,

people may accuse you of ulterior motives.

Be kind anyway.

If you are honest,

people may cheat you.

Be honest anyway.

If you find happiness,

people may be jealous.

Be happy anyway.

The good you do today

may be forgotten tomorrow.

Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have,

and it may never be enough

Give your best anyway.

For you see, in the end,

it is between you and GOD.

It never was between you and them anyway.
