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.
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
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.
(Poem by 11th grader Ronnie Joice)
This poem is a great reminder to me to reverse my perspective when I start feeling negative. I love the fact that when it is read in reverse, I am reading it UP! It’s always better to look up. It’s always better to be climbing, growing, reaching, and rising UP. If you’d like, you can watch an inspiring reverse poem video here. Old one but good one.
I hope YOU are having a wonderful summer. Lead on,
