questioning the system and then feeling helpless is a feature of the the teenage condition. so, apologies :)

Carefully crafting
A genuinely stable              onion
make a label
and act accordingly
provide security
dissolving in                        vanity

spiral into insanity
when the layers 
peel down                           slowly
weighing down
grounding this                     to the core
but the shell remains
it's lost galore
so what are these layers for
their purpose just kinda dies
and they accept all truth and
all lies
I tried a metaphor and it didn't turn out so beautiful, ok?

    Re: Oh...that makes sense too! I guess that’s just one of the things that’s cool about poetry. Everyone has a different interpretation of it.

    "Ogres are like onions, they have layers." XD Sorry just reminded me of that line from Shrek! Great poem though, I think the metaphor came out very well. I got a message of how people just accept where they are, even if it's not the best place.
