Hercules - Ancient Greek Gods, original poem
For Kids and Teachers
Original poem about my favorite Greek God,
Am I really a God?
I think I am the strongest of all mortals
and stronger than many
gods, so I must be a God myself.
I feel invincible being the last mortal son of Zeus yet
I do not feel worthy of being a God because I am a half mortal this
seems so unfair.
I am so strong I was
the deciding factor in allowing the Olympian gods to win their
battle over the Giants.
Why do I feel like a
muscle bound buffoon instead?
Why am I seen as primitive and brutal when all I want to do is help
my family? I think Zeus feels like I created most of my own
I am not satisfied with
their opinion of me.
The gods wouldn't even
be there without me.
My chosen weapon is a massive club not because I am violent but
because it is effective.
I would do anything to
help my friends.
I am very hard on myself and I have a deep sense of justice.
Even when my father
Zeus punishes me I showed great patience and endurance that are his
heroic as my great strength.
I wear a lion skin with
the head still attached not to show off but to prove I am worthy of
I will become the only man ever born to a mortal woman to die of
And I deserve it.
