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;
If you are honest and frank,
people may cheat you;
be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building,
someone could destroy overnight;
If you find serenity and happiness,
they may be jealous;
be happy anyway.
The good you do today,
people will often forget tomorrow;
be good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
give the world the best you have anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;
it is never between you and them anyway.
ANYWAY ANYWAY ANYWAY
