The System is an inspired collection of poetry that considers life just below the surface of the obvious. Delving into the realities of everyday life that are seldom acknowledged but always there, waiting for each of us as we face the challenges and invisible forces in our lives. Author Mario Jiannino looks honestly at the emotions and situations that he encounters, as he considers the impact of the people who have been part of his life experiences.
From looking back on past crushes and what they meant to him to tackling the force of his life choices, his powerful poetry resonates with the sheer emotion of want and need and in some cases resignation to who matters to him and who does not. The System offers poetry that is rife with raw emotion guaranteed to make us think about why our lives take certain paths as we wonder what might have been. This poetry collection represents the author’s no-holds-barred understanding of the life decisions that he has made for himself.
