Escapism

to avoiding the cruel realities of circumstances


Stark reality beckons the plight
Just as odd circumstances do
Tethering one to insane thoughts
That wisdom prevails to abstain from
That gravity of the split second
When decision irreversible seeks
To a situation whence vultures may dare
Instilling their precious wrath
On any suitable prey that succumbs
Then, one would rather gather courage
To indulge in escapism unlimited
