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

You tell em the news
The bad news
Well, it's bad for me
but not for you
My stomach drops
to all new lows
It's at the bottom
of Mariana's trench
I'm shocked
I'm numb
I've lost every single ounce of my strength
I don't want to
But it's not my choice
I guess I'm not allowed
to make decisions anymore

this is really good! The only linve I felt a bit awkward is the following: "It's at the bottom/of Mariana's trench" Perhaps that's just me but it didn't sounds as nice as the rest of the poem. Other than that one line I really liked it. :)
