If you follow the crowd, you might get lost in it.


On the surface the water is nice

To step in and swim would cost you no price

But when you step in, you feel a sharp pull

It comes from the water that seemed gentle and cool

The rippling liquid pulls you down under

Is everything how it appears?

It's this that I wonder


The author's comments:

My inspiration for this poem is that things are oftentimes not what they seem. Something that seems harmless and nice, can  really be the opposite. My poem compares this idea to an undertow under a seemingly calm body of water.
