None Of The Above by Michael Marrotti

None Of The Above

If it was
within
my power
to go back
in time

Make
that
right
instead
of
left

Realign
the stars

Turn
the moon
until it
showed
the bright side

Or simply
shut that door
which would’ve
prevented
you from feeling
the way
you’re currently
feeling

I would’ve
chosen
none of
the above

You’ve made
your choice
you chose
to suffer

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 book, F.D.A. Approved Poetry, available on Amazon.

  1. Do I “like” this one or not? It’s engaging … therefore I opted to “like” it … but it has a brutality about it (at the end most definitely) … we need to know more! Cheers! DaP
