Modern Greek Mythology

 Hestia comforts the children of broken homes, she appears to them as a school councilor that always has cookies. They cry in her arms, and she lets them stay with her for as long as she can. She stopped calling home, stopped making strongly worded comments to the parents. All there is left are broken homes and suffering children.

 Hera sits next to her sister, holds her hand and thinks about the broken marriages that lead to broken homes. She listens to the couples yelling at each other while she walks on the streets. She holds the crying women, she listens to the hopeless men. All of the power that a goddess of marriage possesses cannot help the people who were betrayed by their closest ones.

 After a long day, Demeter sits on the ground in her garden, holds a cup of tea in hands that have dirt all over them. She wishes that more people would remember what is under all of the concrete. She feels the dying of her world, and curses those who do not care for it.

If this is not the saddest Irony I don’t know what is

  • Me: Hades is my favorite Greek god
  • What people think I mean: I'm dark and misunderstood and I think I'm mysterious and dangerous and I wear only black clothes and my hair is always in my eyes
  • What I actually mean: I'm an introverted nerd who gave my dog a stupid name because it's funny and mostly I just want to be left alone except for that one person who is sunshine incarnate
