Part God, Part Human, All Warrior

He was given life
When great Zeus acted out
In a secret tryst
So his birth proved
His father's wandering
He was thus hated
By his father's wife
Hera, unjustly
In ways
He was perfect
But in others
Not at all
Born a warrior
Holding in contempt
All manner
Of character defect
His way was brutal
But direct
He acted in anger
As well as bravery
He never felt true regret
For he lived every moment
With joy
When faced with strife
He endeavored
His bloodlines filled
The veins of every great hero
Forever he will be remembered
A hero's life fulfilled
Every enemy pursued
Every monster killed
A great man fell
And his world
Was less thereafter
