I enjoyed the intensity of this well-written piece. You draw the reader in well, but the conclusion seems to fall short. Keep writing. Lots of potential here.
You caught my attention in the first paragraph with Isaiah's urgency in escaping. In fact, the first two paragraphs are finely crafted.
I just noticed that the word "Isaiah" begins each of your first four paragraphs.Could you vary this by changing the first sentence of one or two of them to begin with a different word?
I agree, the last two paragraphs almost bring this to an end too quickly. Isaiah would be grateful to God, yes, but wouldn't he also be contemplating the dangers that lay ahead, perhaps in the end realizing that the God who provided the "ladder" would guide his steps to freedom. Good article!

I love the ending, just as I love everything else about this piece. Bravo!
