Between You & God
People are often unreasonable and self-centered,
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind,
People may accuse you of ulterior motives,
Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you,
Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous,
Be happy anyway.
The good you do may be forgotten tomorrow,
Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have,
And it may never be enough.
For you see, in the end,
It is between you and God,
It never was between you and them anyway.
