    Worst Day Ever?

    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

    Because

    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

    Creates

    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. ;)
