Poem: The Silence of the Storm

Raiell Trammell, The Eagle Staff Writer

That moment when it’s quiet before the storm.

No one knows what’s going to happen.

You stare into the horizon

Without knowledge of anything.

That fear overcomes you

And all hope is lost.


Those final words you speak before you can’t breathe.

That final breath you take before your heart stops.

The moment when everything is possible

And you are unstoppable.

Everything in your life is at a halt

And you know you have conquered your life.
