can you escape with your hands still keeping a firm grasp on reality?

can you escape without using the door which was forbidden?

can you escape the eyes which now follow you through the deepest recesses of your mind?

can you escape without losing that which you treasure greatly?

can you escape at all?

i cannot.

i have a choice.

to escape?

to lose my sense of worldly issues.

to lose the trust and faith which many have bestowed upon me.

to lose my self integrity.

to lose my soul.

or to stay?

and lose myself.

so i ask you again:

can you escape?
