Michael Marrotti- A Poem


Sharpening The Blade

What could
be said
that hasn't
been said
before

The fix is in
words are
superfluous

Nobility is
pointless
when it's
cloaked in
the shadows

One mistake
is all it takes
Good deeds
don't compare
It's a society
devoted to
negativity

I'm still
living
to die
losing hope
everyday

Sharpening
the same
blade of a
dull knife
still haven't
made a point

Once I
finally do
I'll put it to
good use


Michael Marrotti is an author from Pittsburgh using words instead of violence to mitigate the suffering of life in a callous world of redundancy. His primary goal is to help other people. He considers poetry to be a form of philanthropy. When he's not writing, he's volunteering at the Light Of Life homeless shelter on a weekly basis. If you appreciate the man's work, please check out his blog:www.thoughtsofapoeticmind.blogspot.com for his latest poetry and short stories.

  1. What terrifies me is the minimalistic flow of life & death here. "...losing hope every day"... is strongly written.
