Escapism

A 27-year-old nerd who loves writing, history and just learning as much as possible about the world around him.

Let us escape into history with

a mad man in a bright blue police box.

Or maybe into New York, full of men

of iron, spiders, gods, hulks, kings, captains.

Take a step back from the world you once knew,

and run off to a world with men of steel,

stalking bats, speedsters, green arrows and more.

Escape into a world of fantasy.

Where fire dances off fingertips

and mountains are kicked into existence.

Where men skip along air currents, ride the

waves, tame the thunder, balance light and dark.

Or maybe a world defined by science.

Where man’s taken residence in the stars

and have become attuned to the countless

worlds aside from their own. Yes, let us run

from the world we know. A world abundant

with pain, strife and misery. A world full

of fear of the unknown. One where people

above pull our strings for their own endgame.

One where you are not allowed to hold an

opinion, or else you face resentment.

Why don’t we escape from this world that cries

for action but does little to fix the

problem? From a world whose morality

has decayed well beyond recognition?

Why can’t we truly escape, to the worlds

we constantly imagine ourselves in?
