Mother Teresa's Anyway Poem

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.

By Mother Teresa.

I had the pleasure of watching the whole two episodes about Mother Teresa last night and mentioned seeing it on my facebook comment section.  A friend of mine, Stephannie, was kind enough to send me the above poem which I have posted .

In my view, it is a marvelous poem because of its sentiments and facts. 

I was very moved by what she did with her life and how she was a pure soul, not taking glory for herself, but rather giving glory to the Creator.

I am most greatful to my friend Stephannie for passing this poem on to me to share with you, my readers.  May it bless you.

Mother Teresa is an example to all people.
