I am sometimes absolutely amazed at the creativity that some people possess. I am devoting this blog to an example of writing that takes an incredible amount of effort, forethought, and creativity to produce.

N.B. I found this posted on the web and do not know to whom it should be attributed but I am astonished at what the author produced. I am also continuing to analyze it to understand the techniques they used to create this.

For reasons that will become obvious when you read the following, I call this particular selection –

    The Best and the Worst


     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
     True happiness can be obtained
     Only if once’s surroundings are good
     It’s not true that good exists
     I’m sure you can agree that
     The reality
     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
