Worst Day Ever?

Worst Day Ever?

This poem must be read straight through, top to bottom, then, as the poet instructs, read again from the bottom to the top. It’s a brilliant lesson in the power of perspective to change our perceptions, a fundamental skill for our resilience.  Enjoy.

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.]
