ESCAPE (yikes, I haven't written in a while, hm?)

Do you ever wonder if people knew what they were getting into with diabetes, would they escape?
I've always wondered.

ESCAPE
-Alyssa

When confronted with the question,
Would she choose this path?
Without taking time to think it through,
She knows the answer’s ‘yes.’
Though when she looks him in the eyes,
She wonders if he would do the same?
He once confessed he expected it for her,
If one of them ever was.
And though she knows his love for her,
Why wouldn’t he escape?

When he met this girl,
Did he see all she would be?
See the shoes she’d have to fill,
And the measures she’d have to keep?
When he met this girl,
Why wouldn’t he escape?

When he loved her heart,
Did he feel it breaking?
Feel it torn between the unjust:
To live or have a life?
When he loved her heart,
Why wouldn’t he escape?

When he held her hands,
Could he see the blood they’d shed?
Count the nights they’d shake,
See the tears they’d wipe?
When he held her hands,
Why wouldn’t he escape?

When he saw her learn,
Could he see all she’d know?
See her grow up to simply wish,
She never even knew?
When he saw her learn,
Why wouldn’t he escape?

When confronted with the question,
Would she choose this path?
Without taking time to think it through,
She knows the answer’s ‘yes.’
Though when she looks him in the eyes,
She wonders if he would do the same?
He once confessed he expected it for her,
If one of them ever was.

And though I know your love for me,
Why wouldn’t you escape?
