Do It Anyway
by Kent M. Keith
When people are unreasonable, illogical and self-centred,
Love them anyway.
When you do good and people accuse you of selfish ulterior motives,
Do good anyway.
It often seems the good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow,
Do your best anyway.
When the biggest people with the biggest ideas are shot down by the smallest people with the smallest minds,
Think big anyway.
When people favour underdogs, but follow only top dogs,
Fight for the underdogs anyway.
When what you’ve spent years building up, is destroyed overnight,
When people really need help, but attack you when you help them,
Help them anyway.
When you give the world the best you have and you only receive criticism,
Give the world the best you have anyway.
