Poem – Do it Anyway

Sometimes life can be challenging – it takes strength and courage to walk a noble path. Occasionally you may think it would be easier  to not take responsibility, be honest, give or even be kind. However, before you do that you may like to read this poem by Mother Theresa called “Do it Anyway”.

“People are often unreasonable, illogical,
And self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you
Of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some
False friends and some true enemies;
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank
People may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building,
someone could destroy overnight;
Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness,
they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today,
people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have,
and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.

You see, in the final analysis
it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.” 
(Mother Theresa)
