Some think it insanity, some think it valor.
A jet plane glides over the vast ocean, like an eagle searching for its prey.
It finds its target: a long, war-ridden aircraft carrier.
Locked onto its victim, the aircraft nosedives into a free fall.
The sea vessel has no chance, but neither does the pilot.
A horrible noise reverberates as a dead fire fills the sky.
Travel a few moments back, before the collision, as the pilot sits on his chair.
He’s drenched with sweat, thanks to the hot, cramped cockpit.
But for some reason, he is calm, even cracking a faint smile.
Imminent death, once dreaded, is now welcomed.
In the brief time he has left, he recalls his family, his friends.
The loves, the lives, and the memories he has enjoyed for so long.
Suddenly, a loud roar rings in his ears,
A metallic taste of blood gushes in his throat.
He opens his mouth, trying to scream in pain,
But there is only Silence.
