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

If you lookme in the eye
and try to find my soul
maybe you'll realize
on me, this pain is taking a toll

You think you know
but you dont
You'll try to know
but you won't

I'm not who you think I am
Don't bother trying to understand
an enigma, let my life be
it doesn't matter if there's something wrong with me

I guess there's no point in wasting your time
If you ask me, I'll say I'm fine

I liked the last lines, they summed it up nicely. My only criticism is that I found the second stanza a little too cliche.

Beautiful!  My only criticism is you forgot the apostrophe in 'don't'.

I liked the last stanza, that was really nice(: And the word use of enigma, that was very clever as well. I don't think I've ever even seen that word before :D I like it!
