The Anyway Poem

March 3rd, 2011 by KiHealing1 Leave a reply »

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, yo will win some false friends and some genuine enemies;

Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and sincere, people may deceive you;

Be honest and sincere anyway.

What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;

Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous;

Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, will often be forgotten tomorrow;

Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough;

Give the world your best anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;

It was never between you and them anyway.

Here’s an idea: you can take a single line of the poem and make it your mantra for a day or a week. That could be very powerful. Does this poem move you? How so?

*Note: This poem does not have a known author. It has been credited to about 3 or 4 different people.
