Light is like train on rails. If there is nothing nearby, rails are straight, once big mass is switched on, rails start to spiral, if mass is very, very large, spiral closes into circle, and train (light) is running around, and around, and around. Clearly train can move only on rails, so light cannot escape.

This thread is somewhat poisoned by the "wants to" portion of the title. As of yet, though the differentiation becomes more difficult as we discover more of what reactions occur naturally (and with extremely high odds of likelihood) under certain conditions, we still use "wants" applied only to those entities we consider alive, sentient, amd somewhat intelligent.

If we look at the incredibly short times that various phases of the evolution of the Universe existed, it becomes obvious that the forces that became The Laws of Nature rapidly became utterly compelling, at least for a very long time. Carl Sagan's Universe Calendar shows that in mind blowing and accurate proportion. If current theories regarding Dark Energy are even moderately "in the ballpark" the epoch of Galaxies all alone and eventual Heat Death will be even longer. As superficially glib as the current Pop Pharse, "It is what it is" seems, it is actually quite profound.

and there's nothin' to it, nothin' to it.
You can cry and you can lie,
for all the good it'll do ya' you can die.
But when it's done and the police come
and they lay you down for dead,
just remember what I said.

Classic Paul Simon.

OT - re: Paul Simon

I saw him in concert at an outdoor venue where I had seen many acts before and since. Paul had the legendary Steve Gadd on drums and that was just the heartbeat of the rhythm section! All pros everywhere on that tour. Even the soundcrew were amazing and eked out a beautiful mix that made you feel just like you were listening in your living room... assuming you had a really large living room. Point being, it was intimate and the quality of ther music in every aspect made me wonder if this was what people felt like when Mozart was first performed live. I felt.... privileged. Classic Paul Simon indeed.
