Mother Teresa to be made a saint, Vatican announces

I came across this inspiring and profound poemANYWAY’. It hangs on the walls of Mother Teresa’s children home in Calcutta.  I would like to share it with my blogger friends. THE POEM goes like this:

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 & FRANK’ anyway.

What you spend years 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 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 your God; ‘IT WAS NEVER BETWEEN YOU AND THEM’ anyway.

Let us all not be worried or fearful of what is happening right now in our World but move forward with perseverance, faith and gratefulness that anyways, ALL THIS SHALL SOON PASS and we will all live a happy and joyful life once again on this beautiful Planet of ours.

    1. I am so grateful for your beautiful words dear Michael. God chooses few people on this Earth who can play his role to a hilt and she was one of them. Mother Teresa saw Jesus Christ in each and every soul and she took care of people on the streets, people who had no one to take care of them and she had started a hospital with few of her nuns in the city of Calcutta that is in India. You too have a lovely weekend. Take care and stay safe dear Michael.


    1. So beautiful I just came across this masterpiece and wanted to share it with everyone. I too am going to do the same Ashok. She was an epitome of grace and beauty and saw her Jesus in each and every soul. Thanks so much for your kind words dear Ashok. Take care and stay safe.

  3. Used some of her quotes in mom’s memorial service and on her memorial stone. This one was a bit long to use, but I did read it with a thought to taking a sentence out, but then opted not to use it!
