Found Poem: A Moment in Time
Reese Hullander, Jackson Rogers, and Camdyn Bade
 
There was a moment on earth
Strange to think of it now
 
Gradually then suddenly
Everything fell silent
 
There lurked a number of large questions
He made a number of wrong turns
He’d kept his word, though
Moments he was proud of
 
But what would be out there?
There were inexplicable moments of peace
He saw ghosts of himself everywhere
 
He wanted to be remembered
But words failed him
 
The world had emptied out
