The Last Hero

Poem By Gilbert Keith Chesterton

Hindsight can not be blinded,
To be erased by those wishing it done.
Many are awakening to find these times,
Had warning signs they ignored to have fun.
And wanting to escape to eliminate what appears,
Is commendable by the ones who chose...
To delude themselves and not expect fear.

And here it is,
Threats and fears.
As hindsight retrieved leaves many stunned.
While the ones protesting an outcome that nears,
Too late is it for them to find places to run.
That time has passed.
Along with their fun.

Reality makes no exceptions,
For those unprepared to live truth to accept.
Rejecting its effect,
Does little to stop its purpose or objective.
Regardless who perceives,
Kept delusions will protect them...
From a life to live without truth pursued.
