Poem - Escape

“Escape” was written about the quote: "People become radicalized, or extremist, because they're searching for three very fundamental human needs: identity, community and a sense of purpose”.


Escape

Escape is found by relevance
imbued by life's consequence
a search for more than less
beyond the lone human shell
building character is the goal
personality more than a ghost
self made solid by building blocks
dogma filling in the chinks.

A cast of thousands or much less
it matters not when they meet
brotherhood of that welcomes all
the easy net to catch a soul
this village of the bless and damned
some have sanction to express
the greatest goals of life’s progress
while others are held in chains.

Experience seeks like travelers
to walk against the enemies
much more fearsome in a crowd
only one becomes much more
terror struck by the mob’s bent
power gained when it was lost
striking down the lesser man
to rise above sad origins.
