Trouble (verb) : Synonyms: Manik, adversity, afflict, aggrieve, ailment, anger, calamity, care, commotion, complaint, crisis, danger….

Trouble has an uncanny knack for finding me. Despite the years of my life that I have wasted in transforming from the bad boy to the good boy, I just can’t seem to avoid trouble.
