when life gives you lemons, make grape juice. Then step back and let the world wonder how you did it
when life gives you lemon, throw them back at life

We're both playing the game of love
Will we lose
Or will we win
Roll the die, pick a card
Don't lose a turn
You gotta play hard
to get
How do you win the game?
Where are the rules?
They're written in our heart
Let's start at start
My game piece is a hand
and yours is the one that will hold it
if we win

Nice. I really love this metaphorical poem. It was very well done. :)

Great metaphoric piece!  The only thing that seems odd is "You gotta play hard to get".  To get what?

I liked the part that said "Don't lose a turn" I don't know why, but it just made me smile(: This one is also very nice, metaphoric pieces are always good :D

I Like it alot. Very much, the ending was very sly and cute. But strong at the same time.
