I remember promising you guys that i would post some poems, poems i read when i was school. And i have found on the internet. Poems with words that encourage! the world is full of negativism and discouragement. Enjoy!
The verses below reportedly were engraved on the wall of Mother Teresa's home for children in Calcutta, and are widely attributed to her. However, according to The New York Times, the verses actually were written by 19-year-old Kent Keith in a motivation booklet for high school counselors published while he was a student at Harvard in 1968.
People are often unreasonable, Illogical,
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;
Do 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 was never between you and them anyway.
The last line should remind us that at the end of the day it is what God thinks about you that matters the most. What people think, say or believe about us is not important. We must keep on doing good and all the things mentioned in the poem and even more. We must believe the report of the lord and not that of any man.
