Lemons, bitter, rude, yellow, and sour
The last thing i needed in this untimely hour

When life gives you lemons you make lemonade
But the juice stings my eyes when i cut them with my blade

So all i can do is let them ferment
But the pain grows worse with their horrible scent

I turn my head away from the now spoiled vegitation
But the stench taunts, and it teases, increasing my frustration

But i calm down, and worry not
Because the first sign of a fruits end, is always its rot

I hate when somebody says "when life gives you lemons you make lemonade." Sometimes thats just not possible, there isnt always good to make from bad. Sometimes you just have to stick with the storm and wait it out.
