Telemachus
 
By United Writings
 
My name is Telemachus, Son of Odysseus,
My father left me the day I was born,
Twenty years ago
 
My name is Telemachus, Son of Odysseus,
    My mother tells me he was a great man,
Others say he was bad
 
My name is Telemachus, Son of Odysseus,
I have decided I won't know if my father is good or bad,
Unless I see for myself
 
My name is Telemachus, Son of Odysseus,
I set off to the sea to search for my father,
Leaving my dear mother home
 
My name is Telemachus, Son of Odysseus,
I encountered Athena disquised as a man called Mentor,
Telling me my father will be home
 
My name is Telemachus, Son of Odysseus,
I voyaged home and when I returned,
I discovered my father was disquised as a beggar,
 
My name is Telemachus, Son of Odysseus,
My father had beaten my mothers test,
Then he and I fought together,
 
My name is Telemachus, Son of Odysseus,
Once we slaughtered all the traitors,
We got to live as one family finaly, United.

A little bit formal, though I like to romance the stories of mythlogy with a little magic tossed in lol

Omg!! Homer's Odyssey. The son so desperate to see his father and refusing to believe he was dead. I love that epic. That's cool

Hm, it's really interesting. I like how it retells the story, but I think it could be even better if some insight of Telemachus' emotions and reactions to Odysseus' arrival were tied in.
