A LESSON IN PERCEPTION

Advertisements

I love writing poems, they are such a great way of getting thoughts to gather in a new way and shed a glimmer of light on something that was perhaps a little too dark. I came across this wonderful piece of work the other day and just had to share it with you all.

The poem was written by New York student Chanie Gorkin and remarkably found tacked to the wall in a London bar.

It gives us a very clever lesson in perception and reminds us how the way you look at something can change it entirely… impossible not to feel better after reading this

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,

THE 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

Advertisements

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

CREATES

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.
