AnyWay, But…

People are
unreasonable, illogical and self centred.
Love them anyway.

If you do good,
people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.

If you are successful
you win false friends and real enemies.
Succeed anyway.

The good you do today
will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness
make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.

People favour underdogs
but follow only top dogs.
Fight for some underdogs anyway.

What you spend years
building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

People really need help
but may attack you if you help them.
Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have
and you’ll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you’ve got,

But…  don’t I (we) deserve better?
