Anyway (instead of 'whatever')

Do It Anyway ::

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 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.

Lots of things to ponder over in the above lines.
You see, I'm more of a 'whatever' person than an 'anyway' person.
Gotta work on that - - - -
