A rare occurrence

By Rayn BPublished about a year ago Updated about a year ago 1 min read
This poem is dedicated to my loved ones who were taken far too soon in a tragic accident.


A common fear.

But is it really flight

That frightens us,

Or are we afraid

Of falling?



A rare occurrence

For airplanes.

An event that sparks

Headlines and

Vicarious horror.



A phone call

From our mother.

She is screaming,

Saying through sobs,

“It’s on the news.”



A web search

Confirms the truth.

You always wanted

To be famous…

But not like this.



A fate that

Awaits us all.

But I never would

Have guessed this

Is how you’d leave me.



A process

They promise will

Get better with time…

But I am running

Out of patience.



I am doing it


But I can barely

Even look up

At the sky anymore.



The only way

I see you now.

Here, we are safe,

Because here,

We have our own wings.
