The Polyglot Vanilla Icing Ruins My 18th Birthday, my 19th Birthday *And* My Prom!

It's a big day for the world,
Except that it will be seen as an oddity
Come next year.
And you are sitting there,
Telling everybody how great it is.

Congratulations,
Now you like something common!
You can have it twice a month!
Twice a month is quite a lot!
You wanted to buy something stable!
Well, it does not appear to be stable at all...
There's a pun on the word "stable" here,
But you are yet to see it.

You will want to erase this from your life,
You will want to take it off your walls,
You were born for some sort of deep things,
You were born to be so much deeper than this.

You're looking for the top of the world right now,
You need to cast a glance at the rock bottom right now.

And he can't write a thing to save his life,
But he's a polyglot, or some such.
And he will be an epic underachiever come tomorrow,
But he's socially acceptable after all, or some such.
And mom thinks he's cute!

And he can't sing a note the way he should,
But he plays instruments, or some such.
And he's a nerd in a world where nobody supposedly is,
But he will eventually will make babies, or some such.
And mom thinks he's cute!

I never wanted anything, but I got into it,
Deep inside, I knew that I just played a part,
A convenient way to rebel against the system
Strange things are called rebellion nowadays.
I never became a possession in anybody's eyes,
I just hitched a ride to what really became of me
And I had happened to be taking the bypass.
I never lost my faith in humanity, or whatever
I dabbled around for a couple of years,
But I still was whatever I thought I was back then.

I don't know how to explain this poem. As far as I am aware, nothing in my digital archive is about whatever it's about.
