High school society's rusty blade
Has somehow stabbed your strength and
Cutinto your once-thick skin.
Now your heart is leaking and
The depth of yoursoul has
Suddenly become shallower than
The kiddy pool we used to
Splasharound in when we were
Confident and carefree ...
But you seem to be blindto
This change; blind to
The warm blood that spills
From your veinsas
You lose yourself; blind as
Your life-liquid turns
Cold andcrusty,
Staining the front of
Your trendy, new tank top; blind as
Youempty yourself to make
Room for their ideas and
Standards; blind as
Youbecome the person
They want you to be ...
You transform; you conform-
From nutshell to eggshell;
Syrup to Evian -
You soften and dripuntil
Your integrity is nothing more than
A waste product ...
So addsome artificial flavoring,
Bottle your self-worth,
And sell it for$2.95
