Poem: What to do With Life’s Lemons

when life gives you 


what do

you do with them?

where do you hide

the things that are

too sour

to be seen?

how do you cook

with ingredients

that pucker

your lips?

life has given

me quite a few


so i have had

a lot of time

to ponder

how to use them. 

and after years

of getting lemons,

i have finally

come to realize

that not all recipes

made with lemons

make me miserable.

and that maybe

the tart parts

of my life 

do not always

need to be stowed
