To Be—Not to Seem (Poem)

Grieve not, though men thy meaning miss,
Though thine intention they suspect:
It matters not, but stoop and kiss
Thy cross, content that e'en in this
God hath thy need, nor will reject.

Grieve not, though misconstrued may be
Thy act, thy word: it were as well.
The motive matters. Who shall see
Beyond what each conceives of thee?—
None but thy soul thyself can tell.
