Lemons

By: Samantha Hughes

They say

When life gives you lemons

Make lemonade

I say

When life gives you lemons

Cut them in halves

And eat them

Whole

I say

Do not wait for them

to sweeten

Eat them sour

and bitter

With your fist

clenched

your eyes

shut

a lemon juice

dripping down

your forearm
