The night before bunker reflections....

'twas the night before Christmas
I sit and reflect
Upon a group I left this year
Wondering if I'm a reject

The more I think about it
I realize I am not
It took 3 years to wake up
But at least I got out

Much like the Church of Scientology
With which they are obsessed
They've become very similar
Totally possessed

You end up participating
Endeavors not done on your own
It's for the greater good they say
You're out of your moral comfort zone

You feel like you belong
Are working to help others
The truth is that you're not
You've lost all your druthers

The group is in a bunker
That is underground
I use to wonder why that was
But that's where trolls abound

Attacking those who disagree
Who dare to think for themselves
Just like Scientology
You're put on treason shelves

Good people caught up in a cult
They must wake up on their own
Some day hopefully they will
From the group they'll be blown

I still feel guilt for taking part
For getting caught up in such a morass
How many apologies how much atonement
Til I'm free from this at last?

When you lose your free will
To the power of group think
You don't realize it's happening
It's gone in a blink

Though one person caused me hell
And made me quite physically sick
I'm ultimately thankful to them
As it made things click

Detaching myself I saw things anew
Seeing the reality and was quite shocked
Why was I a part of this?
I felt punched, cold-cocked

I tried to leave quietly
Wanting to fade away
That wasn't allowed
Fine then, have an essay, okay?

How dare I do that
I was suppose to be quiet
Words misconstrued
Mini online riot

If you have another view
Or dare to speak the truth
You'll be bullied and harassed
Treated most uncouth

Following the playbook
Of the church they claim to hate
They've become what they're against
Was that always to be their fate?

I wish them no ill will
Nothing but the best
Some day they might see the truth
Until then, they can't rest

May the new year bring peace
Even if it's just in your heart
It needs to spread worldwide
But from within is a good start

Let me exclaim
Before I go look at Christmas lights
Merry Christmas to all
And to all a good night
