Do It Anyway

People are often unreasonable,
illogical and self centred,
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.

What you spend year 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 best anyway.

You see, in the final analysis,
it is between You and God,
it is never between,
You and Them anyway.
