The FINAL Analysis

The FINAL Analysis
Written by Dr. Kent M. Keith

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 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've got anyway.

You see, in the FINAL analysis,
it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway

_end of poem_


If you're struck by this poem
because you feel that the author seems to
talk about how you really feel at the moment,
Then I want you to know...
I feel exactly the same.
Be happy anyway! :)
God loves us. He knew we will be needing
this kind of comforting messages
once in a while.
Courage! We are never alone.

P.S. Thank you Teresia for sharing this beautiful message!
