Life Like an Ocean

my life is like the ocean.
calm, but restless.
predictable and spontaneous.

you can't contain me.
i'll flow from your controlling grasp.

i am transparent.
can't you see through my liquidity?
others pollute me with their
foul language and acts of deceit.
what was once a clear blue,
is now a murky gray.

i never cease to amaze,
never doing what you expect.

how can you trust something with more depth than you can see?

It was a decent poem until the last sentence, which made it absolutlely gorgeous. To be honest, the beginning comparisons to life and the ocean were a touch predictable, but the last sentence was beautiful. Good job. Run with stuff like your last sentence more often because it's GENIUS!
