Achilles

Achilles

I, Achilles, was born to fight
Heroic battles on all field.
Endowed with pure couragious might,
Against all foes, I did it wield.
At birth dipped into River Styx
By my mother to give to me
Protection for future conflict.
Held by the heel that would not be
Invulnerable to attack.
Years later in the Trojan war,
A poisoned arrow came on track
To pierce my heel. I lived no more.

Disappointed is how I feel,
Remembered mainly for my heel.

ACHILLES by Ima is a very good poem based upon a mythological character.
