The Greatest Escape

what makes one free

the ability to have no cares

carry no baggage

freedom to move

when are we most free

when we have no stress

when we are able to just be

when we have a choice

when can we escape

why do we want to escape

to what are we escaping

the fire or the frying pan

is not the greatest escape

the ability to escape


true freedom

even it be to grass less green

the fire is warmer than the frying pan

maybe some of us take solace in its heat
