This Poem About Life That's Gone Viral Will Blow Your Mind

17-year-old Chanie Gorkin wrote this poem in school last year in Brooklyn. The, shall I dare say, brilliant poem made it to the semi-final round of a contest on, but I don't think she ever thought it would make its way across the pond.

The assignment asked the students to focus on their worst day ever, but Chanie was inspired by Hasidic teachings and focused on the good that's found in the bad, and vice versa.  

How was it discovered in London of all places? Ronnie Joice saw the poem written on a bar wall and was so moved by it that he shared it with his followers on Twitter. Now, it's absolutely viral.


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 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 read from the bottom to top.
