SAY NOT WHAT IF by Andrew Friedman

Say Not What If


This novelette, more of a pamphlet or short story, is completely written in rhyming verse. I found that the rhyming lightened the mood of a serious and often gruesome topic. It's about a man on death row who starts to reevaluate his life and the choices he made - just a little too late. Some of the verses made me laugh outloud and then I would need to read to my family. Even though the plot wasn't funny at all.

The writing is clever and unique, one can not help but start to look back at his/her life and reexamine the choices that they made. It also shows that no matter what your circumstances are there is time to make peace with yourself and what you believe.

Time is precious?? How important is money? happiness? This story opened my eyes, but is it because I'm already 1/2 out the corporate world already?
