The Divine Family - Poem by ROGEL FRANCIS SORIOSO

The twelve divine Olympians of the Kingdom Olympus
Guiding mankind in its journey and knowing their purpose
The mighty Zeus the All father and the source of all creation
Creator of everything that is good or bad for our salvation
Apollo second in command to Zeus and next in line to his father
The God of sun and light who watches over men as they gather
Diana the twin of Apollo and the Goddess of the moon or night
The huntress of the woods and the lover of the wild by daylight
Hera the wife or sister of Zeus and our lovely Queen
Revered of her majestic beauty by those who have seen
Poseidon the ruler of the sea and Zeus's own brother
Worshiped and honored as much for the one as for the other
Athena the daughter of Zeus and a fierce battle Goddess
The protector of cities and states while being so modest
Venus the most beautiful and the Goddess of love
Seducing men by her beauty but no one can have
Hades the ruler of the underworld and the dead
There's a lot of stories about him but only in my head
Hermes the most cunning and Zeus's messenger
The master thief and in Olympus almost a stranger
Ares the warrior of battles and the God of war
For him to die in battle is sweet as reaching a star
Vulcan the God of fire and the armorer or the smith
Upon his anger there would be eruptions and extreme heat
Hestia the Goddess of each dwellings and home
Her fire was once cared for by six vestals in Rome
These are the twelve Olympians responsible for all of mankind's character
Whether it is a negative or positive trait we will still go on to the next chapter
Sometimes we even disagree, argue or even fight against each other
But we never fail to settle our differences for it never really matter
We hope and search for eternal death but its nowhere to be found
Immortals as we can be we still seek human company all around
Never envy us for we will never know the true meaning of peace and rest
For the flesh and human experience for us would always be the best
R.F.S.
