D-Xirable Poem! Kent M. Keith "The Paradoxical Commandments"!

Hello, my wonderful and amazing loves!

Here is another one of my fave poems. It's "The Paradoxical Commandments" by Kent M. Keith. I love how this poem encourages you to stay positive despite the negatives. I love how it tells us to love people anyway, to do good anyway, to succeed anyway, to be honest anyway, to think big anyway, to build anyway, to help people anyway, and to do your best. It's a very encouraging and inspiring poem.

The Paradoxical Commandments
By Kent M. Keith

People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.

The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.

People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.

I hope you enjoyed the post and poem by Kent M. Keith!

With love,
LaTasha B.
