ICYMI the Internet has been going gaga over this poem! You have to read it all the way through though, because there’s a great twist at the end.
But OUR favorite twist in this story is the fact that the no-longer-anonymous poet is a teen from Brooklyn! As reported by a local news station, Chanie Gorkin, originally wrote the poem for an assignment at school. “I don’t think there is such a thing as the worst day ever,” Gorkin said in an interview. “I wanted to show how your day is really based on how you look at things.”

Gorkin hopes her message will continue to spread: “I just hope that if people were really inspired by this then they should try to do something to inspire other people and spread this attitude everywhere.” And so do we!!
