Worst Day Ever

I saw this poem and thought it was too good to be true.  Most likely you've seen it on Facebook or other social media.  If not, the 11th grader, Chanie Gorkin was brilliant when she wrote this.

I realize you can't read the words in the picture, but I've retyped them in this blog post.  Hopefully I'm not stepping on anything copyrighted and if I am, please let me know.  I just thought this was so profound and wanted to share it with the world.

Worst Day Ever

by Chanie Gorkin

Today was the absolute worst day ever
And don’t try to convince me that
There’s something good in every day
Because, when you take a closer 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 attained
Only if one’s surroundings are good
It’s not true that good exists
I’m sure 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
Today was a very good day

Now read it from bottom to top, the other way,
And see what I really feel about my day.
