A Very Beautiful Poem By Mother Teresa - Poem by Poonam Rajora

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, at it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you've anyway.

You see, in the final analysis it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.
