Burnt Toast

Doing all you could
turn all bad to good.
Scraping the burnt toast,
making life the most
.

Drinking lemonade,
everything’s okay.
Scraping the burnt toast,
making life the most.


Withstanding the test,
dumping if not best.
Scraping the burnt toast,
making life the most.


Tug of war to pull,
see my glass half full.
No need to scrape toast,
life is what I wrote
.
