Today-was-the-worst-dayThis remarkable poem was written recently by high school student Chanie Gorkin, from Brooklyn, New York.

I hope that you like it:

Today was the worst day ever

And don’t try to convince me that

There’s something good in every day

Because when you take a look,

This world is a pretty evil place.

Even if

Some goodness does shine through once in a while

Satisfaction and happiness don’t last.

And it’s not true that

It’s all in the mind and heart


True happiness can be obtained

Only if one’s surroundings are good

It’s not true that good exists

I’m sure that you can agree that

The reality


My attitude

It’s all beyond my control

And you’ll never in a million years hear me say that

Today was a good day

Now read from bottom to top

Bravo Chanie, bravo.  Thanks for this brilliant perspective changer.
