Today was the worse day ever

A reader sent this to me. You may have seen it. It’s from The writer is reported to be an 11th grader, Chanie Gorkin. It’s a poem titled, “Worst Day Ever?” The posting on appears to have no date.

The writing seems stilted—but after you’ve read it, you’ll understand why. Take a look. It’s very short. But it speaks for itself.


Today was the absolute worse 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 obtained

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 that

Today was a good day


Now re-read—from bottom to top.
