There's More To This 'Sad Poem' Than Meets The Eye

chanie gorkin - sad happy poem

We live in turbulent and often stressful times, a period where quite often we can easily forget to keep our chins up and our heads high.

The above poem, found on a wall on Holloway Road, London, at first seems to be a sad note, steeped in emotion and sorrow, a downbeat cry towards the evils of the world. Until you reach the last line and everything changes.

Created by 17-year-old (makes you feel like an underachiever, right?) New Yorker, Chanie Gorkin it's a refreshing breath of fresh amidst the drudgery.

Have a read for yourself and share the good will.
