Trouble Is An Object

Trouble is an object  
You don't really want it 
Pass it to the next man
Maybe he will want it 

Maybe he will flaunt it
Attracted to its danger 
Or draw back and cast it 
In the direction of his anger

Trouble is an object
That can transform to objectives
It  hampers you then lays dormant 
Disguised as retrospectives

It's around every corner
Its on the other side of every wall
Its so easy to get into 
Its one size fits all

Trouble is an object
Shapeless, formless, inanimate at best 
You can see it, hear it, and feel it
When amongst its test

It's ever so flammable 
With a domino effect
So using trouble to solve a trouble
Usually makes a bigger mess

But at the same time
Trouble is not undefeated
Many have opposed it 
And many easily succeeded

So never fret never fear
Whether or not trouble is near
For it is only an object
You move on and persevere
