A Poem by Mother Theresa

This poem was written by Mother Theresa and is engraved on the wall of her home for children in Calcutta.

 

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 a 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 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 God,

It never was between you and them anyway.
