Are the Legends True?

Updated on July 16, 2015

The Introduction

Stories about Legends are told in every place. Children often fantasize growing up to become like one of the legends. Stories about Legends are fun to listen to. Some of those stories may sound awesome whilst others draw pictures of weird activities.

My question of worry that I keep asking people, even in my adulthood, is this: “are those stories or legends true?” I have not gotten the answer I’m looking for as yet. I believe I am not the only one in such a mess.

Some of those stories are as old as Methuselah. They have been told to every generation. These stories have been told and passed on from generation to generation and still going. Has there ever been one that has been proved wrong? I believe time will certainly tell. There may come a time when some of these stories may be questioned and subsequently proved wrong. I have expressed how I feel through this poem.

legends

1. He was born with a tiny golden sword in his hand,

He sat on an egg but neither cracked nor crushed it,

His father was half man, half god,

His mother was like-wise his father,

Are the Legends true?


2. His voice thundered like ten thousand trumpets,

He grew in stature like no other,

So mean he appeared,

From among the people, he hardly disappeared.

Are the Legends true?


3. He had a lion for a pet,

And the shell of a sea turtle for a stool,

Leopard skin for a bed,

And Tiger skin for a dress,

Are the Legends true?


4. Legends are born and legends are made,

We stay put in flight and see,

So astonishing they make it seem in our eyes,

We listen in awe and wish to behold in life,

But, are the legends true?

The Discussion

Stanza 1

The writer begins by giving instances of activities that the legends claim actually happened. He is in great doubt and does not seem to believe it though. It is mind-boggling to him and wishes to have the ability to believe in it but still finds it difficult.

Stanza 2

In this stanza, the writer delves a little bit into the appearance of the personality described as a legend. Obviously, their appearance connotes one that is out-of-world. Their appearances are unusual and simply weird to the understanding of the normal mind of a person.

Stanza 3

He goes further to pin-point other weird aspects of the legend.

Stanza 4

The writer is still inconclusive as he knows very well that it will take a miracle to reveal some aspects of the legends in reality. He is still in a state of unbelief but ready to roll with the punches as they come in. A big cloud of doubt still hangs on his head.
