The Truth of Medusa

We look at the Greek myths in History,
The monsters great and fearsome come to life,
And yet, one creature stops, a mystery,
A gorgon that has lived through tears and strife.
Medusa, once a beautiful priestess,
Had worked within Athena's temple home,
Though at the time when she was in distress,
Athena made her gaze turn men to stone.
A victim of the jealousy of gods,
She roamed the world, still mortal, but unmatched,
Until a hero came against the odds,
He killed her and had her head unattached.
It seems that even those divine and pure,
Have thoughts still clouded by jealousy's lure.

  2. I always thought Medusa's story was tragic and sad... But then, she WAS turning some heroes to stone, which is kind of mean. :P
