The Daily Prompt – Panicked!

The chants of Jesus, Jesus, filled the air

People prayed, cursed, and sang

There was unbridled trepidation

As the turbulence climaxed

What unfolds next?


They prayed harder. They cursed harder.

Quick glances flew across the room

Couples held one another in tight embrace

Cries of children send chills to the bones

Commotion and pandemonium broke loose

As the noise became deafening

What unfolds next?


They swerved right

And then they swung left

Everyone held their breath in their palms

As hot sweat trickled down their brows

Sweet memories flooded their minds

Oh! What unfolds next?


Who wouldn’t feel panicky?

Who wouldn’t be scared to death?

Jolted back to reality

Sanity returned stealthily

As the plane landed abruptly

Infusing new lifeline into

Shattered souls


Submitted for the Daily Prompt – Panicked.

Peace and Love!

    1. Welcome! That’s the way my heart races any time I board a plane. It can be very scary sometimes. May God help us abort plane crashes because it’s always very fatal. Amen. Nice weekend to you, Amaka. Xx
