An Earth poem for our modern times, inspired by Greek Mythology

We the Titans reign,
In Gaia’s Garden,
Blood of Earthen vein,
Through our bodies, flow,

Mother, sowed our seeds,
Fathered by the Sky,
Uranus breeds,
Greed in privilege,

Fertile soil womb,
Who bore and birthed,
Held and weaned till bloom,
Nurtures our nature,

Mother, who gave life,
Must bear the burden,
Forever the strife,
Of her kin at war,

Cycles subsistence,
Sons, murder fathers,
Final resistance,
Titanomachy -

Olympus will rise,
The old guard will fall,
Will Zeus in the skies,
Light the coming age?

  1. “Sons, murder fathers…”

    Greek mythology in a nutshell. 😀

    I love this whole piece, and I find it so beautiful and entrancing. The details and imagery you weave seem so flawless, yet you can feel the shuttering violence in lines such as:

    “Forever the strife,
    Of her kin at war…”

    “Cycles subsistence,
    Sons, murder fathers,
    Final resistance,
    Titanomachy -”

    It’s mesmerizing.

  2. Greek mythology weaves a torrid tale of rebellion, father’s and children, Uranus and his, the Cronus and Zeus. What you sow you reap

    I don’t know if Gaia is completely innocent in all this…stirring up the children, but then again they were trapped in the underworld by papa.
