When life hands you lemons,make grape juice and then sit back and watch as the world wonders how you did it.

Momma used to tell me
That if I played with fire I’d get hurt
But what she doesn’t know
Is that I live for the burn

The burn of life
The sting of truth
The twinge of pain
Every time I move

Tell me, Momma,
What was I supposed to do?
You were never there for me
Do you even know what I went through?

No, you don’t.
You only worry about yourself
But now I refuse
To be set up on a shelf

They say I’ll be just like you
But I refuse to be
I will be a better person
I will be me
