I was wondering if it would okay to liken human conscience to water. Do you find these natural? 1. The doctor told him Gina would've survived had he brought her sooner to the hospital. This rocked the waters of his conscience like a violent summer storm. 2. He was a psychopath. Nothing could so much as ripple the murky waters of his conscience. 3. Somewhere in the backwaters of her conscience, she blamed herself for her daughter's failure.
