Forget Me Not

"The Worst Day Ever"
Today was the 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 heart and mind...
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 that
Today was a very good day

Now read from the bottom up!

Oh, I forgot to say - your poem really surprised me at the end. How lovely and inspiring. Life is all about how you look at it, at times.
