Making Life Sweeter

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida. .

If life hands you lemons,

make your lemonade

with plenty of sugar,

sweeten up your life.

Put on your favorite music

as loud as you can.

Lay back and drift away

or start to dance for joy.


If life hands you lemons,

hand them right back.

Say you will make your own life grand..

Never say never.

don’t ever give up!


If life hands you lemons,

say thank you and smile.

Add a splash of vodka,

to calm your nerves.

You are the captain of your ship,

you are the one,

who can make it all turn out just right.

Remember to be at the harbor,

not the train station

and lead your own parade –

as the ship sails in.


If life hands you lemons,

throw them all up in the air.

Jump for joy and say,

better luck next time!

Find the right poetic rhymes,

let the music play

and don’t forget to say –

lemons are always sweeter when you add the sweetness of life!
