Mother Teresa Poem

I found this poem for a blog I follow (SkinnyRunner) and I thought I'd share it. Mother Teresa was truly an amazing person, loved every person, and trusted fully in God. I had never heard of this poem before, but I love it!

Mother Teresa’s Anyway Poem

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 your God; 
It was never between you and them anyway.
