Twenty-Two Minutes

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.
