Hello all, from Artsieladie!

We all go through difficult times in our lives, sooner or later. If we can find a way to turn something negative into a positive or if we can find the silver lining with the clouds, we gain strength to get past whatever, get through it, and arrive on the other side of the hurdle with our hope to carry on still in tact. This poem is about this. When your handed lemons in life, make lemonade and it came to me from the concept a friend posted on Facebook about. Hence, the inspirational credit goes to: Mohammad Zafarullah Khan Marwat. Thank you.

When in life we are given 
Lemons bitter and so sour,
Choose to make lemonade,
To ourselves empower.

Take the negative,
The bitter, sour of
And turn it into positive,
Sweeten it with Love.

I have learned to do this
I must say rather well.
My lemonade is free
For I will never sell.

The recipe is simple
With a few basic needs.
You'll need some lemons
With/without seeds.

Take those bitter lemons,
Give them many squeezes
Add in some Holy Water
Along with God's Pleases.

As you are stirring,
The bees for honey, ask
Mix in lots of laughter
To make a happy task.

Introduce some sunshine,
To bring out the sweetness of
And when it has matured,
Be sure to serve with Love!
