Tangoing violently

I live in a city with graffiti everywhere, so this poem gives me a new perspective. If I were you I would change the last word to walls; it emphasizes the commanality.

"If life gives you lemons, make lemonade."

there are only four syllables in the first line. you would need another syllable for it to be a haiku
