Michael Marrotti- A Poem

Sharpening The Blade

What could
be said
that hasn't
been said

The fix is in
words are

Nobility is
when it's
cloaked in
the shadows

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

I'm still
to die
losing hope

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

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