If you are in an abusive relationship of any kind… employment, school, boyfriend/ girlfriend/ spouse, church, friendship, family… any kind… then read this. More importantly, get the book! It will help you.

This selection, “Escape”, describes how Sophia did it, which is a metaphor for the way I did it. You may not do it this way. But this is how I did it:

“All it takes is one small opening
and one small opportunity.

Just underneath the straw in my cell I found a hatch door.
My means of escape was always available to me.
I just hadn’t seen it yet.

My captors are busy playing their games, planning their next move,
unaware that I have found my means of escape and made mine!

I must make a plan. But I have no idea how to implement it.
All I know is that I must escape.
But I need to be clear how. And when.

I felt like a slave for years. Like I said, I tried to ignore the fact.
Then I tried to change the circumstances.
Finally I had to admit I was enslaved. I had to liberate myself.

But I still needed to know exactly when.
I asked for perfect clarity on when I was to make my decision
and I would act on it immediately.

So many things had to be aligned. Like colossal planets.
Everything had to be perfectly in line. And I knew exactly what had to be in line.

I waited.

Then one day it happened. I knew just as clear as I ever knew anything.
It was time! Immediately. I was done! Done with my slavery.

No time to hesitate. Like the exodus, hastily at night carrying nothing.

So I took a deep breath.
I lifted the hatch door.
And I slipped away.
I stole away as suddenly as a light goes out.
I slipped out of bondage like I slip out of my clothes.

Then I was gone. Never to return.

Escaped.”
