The Pond

The river comes crashing down

pulverizing everything in its path

eating through the veins of life

That river filled with steroids

Disrespect and overconfidence

Unnecessary aggression

That river of lies

Hiding the poison within

spreading it to others

I prefer the serene pond

The algae accumulates

for all to see

No coverup of the truth

No drowning in its arms

Strength is misunderstood

and overvalued

I prefer the stable

surface tension

of my pond
