Written for Poetic Bloomings 9/11/13 “In-Form Poetry Wednesday with RJ Clarken” – The form: Goethe Verse; the theme 9/11/01.
In twenty-two minutes they chose
what their final moments would be.
When the call for action arose,
it took shape on Flight Ninety-three.
Informed of events taking place,
they took charge of their destiny.
A plan they were quick to embrace
sealed the fate of Flight Ninety-three.
The passing of years cannot fade
this inspiring memory.
Heroes, with courage well displayed,
were aboard that Flight Ninety-three.
