Message to Readers

I've been a bit slow on uploads recently, but this prompt by Corner Writing Club was a great way to get my creative JUICES flowing (I apologise, that was uncalled for)
I've realised that I really like writing this kind of ranty poetry in lowercase now so imma stick with it and see how it goes.

#LifeLemonsPrompt

September 7, 2018

FREE WRITING

9
    when Life gives you Lemons
is what they say
but it's never Life
who hands out
this sour
bitter tang.

    when Life gives you Lemons
you have to move on
because Life won't be
taking back
those lemons
anytime soon.

    when Life gives you Lemons
that's just how it is.
it's nature
it's order
it's how things
are meant to be
we just don't like to accept it.

    but if you ever tell me
to make lemonade
out of the injustices
out of the ways
that i've been mistreated
out of the ways
that are purely Human -
their spiteful words
as unforgiving
as any citrus -
then
i might just have to
throw those Lemons in your face
and see how you make lemonade out of it.

    Haha, I love the line "I might just have to throw those Lemons in your face and see how you make lemonade out of it". This is awesome!

    Wow, I love it! It flips the phrase on its head, turning it into almost a story, creating an honest narrator that knows things will never be perfect but is tired of the fake positivity society is constantly promoting. It has a strong message that is communicated excellently in this poem. Great work, and keep writing!
