Troubled Waters

Don’t lie.

The murkiness is clear to see.

You are more likely

To find discrepancy in waters that appear perfectly still,

Where people mirror back to one another

What they think others want to see,

Hiding who they really are from view

Because they are smart enough to know

That nobody likes troubled waters

Shaky convictions

Messy situations

Uncomfortable conversations-


Yet if you ever get close enough

To even the most wonderful of humans

You may come to know,


That troubled waters

Are all there is.
