Is it an onion?
Or, is it a tear?

                                                         A life
                                                       As like
                                                    Peeling an
                                                 Onion. At first
                                               The layers are thin
                                             And hardly noticeable.
                                           Then as you go along the
                                         Layers become much thicker 
                                        Laced with flavor and vitamins
                                       And tears, sweet precious tears
                                         We should treasure and savor
                                             Each one. For, the dead
                                                     Cry no more.
