when life gives you lemons, make grape juice. Then step back and let the world wonder how you did it
when life gives you lemon, throw them back at life

I'd like to say I'd be any girl you want me to be
But that's a blatant lie
I can only be me
To be someone else, I won't even try
Especially not for you
Because If I have to change who I am
Because me you don't understand
Then we are not for each other
Baby, there will be others

Excellent work!  There aren't any misspellings and I don't know enough about poetry to criticize your grammar.  :)

i really love how you write the way you would probably talk. it sounds intelligent without big awkward words that you dont really know how to use. this, just like the other ones ive read of yours, is getting five stars :D oh, and i love the picture you chose for this too :)

This is so true... We need to be true to ourselves and the great guys will come running! Bahaha, I really liked it though(: You write about real world stuff that people can really relate too!
