BROOKLYN - A Brooklyn teen's surprising poem has gone viral.
Chanie Gorkin, of Crown Heights, wrote the poem "The Worst Day Ever?" for a school assignment and it is now inspiring thousands around the world.
The poem is about a bad day, but when read from the bottom up, it is actually a poem about the "best day ever."
Chanie's mother posted the poem in a contest, and it then made its way through social media.
She says that her daughter was influenced by growing up in a Chassidic community where she was taught to see the positive in everything. She also says that Chanie is very private and at first hated all the attention her poem received.
Chanie's mother also says that her daughter hopes people take inspiration from her poem and pay it forward by doing something nice to another person.
