"Mother Teresa Prayer"
People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;

of selfish, ulterior motives;
... Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some
false friends and some true enemies;
... Succeed anyway.

It was never between you and them anyway.
We can do no great things - only small things with great love.

I am the Wizard. This world is mine.
I speak. It's done. My realm is fine.

I say angry, or I say glad.

This world's my joy. This mouth's my toy.

Come join. Come play. This can be fun.
