An Original poem about my favorite Greek God, Hercules

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 problems.

 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 people's respect. 

I will become the only man ever born to a mortal woman to die of God.

And I deserve it.
