Don't Stir My Calm Water

Don't stir my calm water
There is an active volcano
Ready to erupt
Inside of me.

Keep your hands
To yourself
If you strike me
A serpent is ready
To inject its venom into you.

Keep your harsh words
In your mind
Tame your mouth
Otherwise the hornets
Will hush you forever.

I tell you
Don't stir my calm water
You will be sorry
If you do.

Here I mean peaceful mind is calm water and when it is stired or disturbed it creates eruption. It is really a brilliant write on metaphorical base having stunning expression. Thanks for sharing.10
