Pandoras Inception

Updated on May 1, 2015

Prometheus stole fire from the heavens and brought it down to earth

Zeus thought Prometheus need taught a lesson, hence, Pandora's birth

The gods schemed to create a woman to send to earth for Prometheus to receive

She would be so perfect and look so beautiful so mankind she could deceive

She was formed of clay and Venus painted on to her desire

Mercury bestowed persuasion, Apollo gifted her voice of choir

After all the gods contributed an attribute or two

Athene was last to give her gift , the gift of life she blew

She was named Pandora which means "all giving"

and with a box in hand she was sent down to the living

Arriving at Prometheus' door, he wouldn't let her in

suspecting that the box she held contained a tainted sin

Despite his brothers warning, Epimetheus welcomed her

and warned her not to unseal the box as it may cause a stir

Pandora was of curious nature and couldn't let the mysterious box sit unopened

Destruction and affliction were released and wouldn't go back in, even though she beckoned

Pandora panicked and hastened to reseal the box when she noticed something was still within

What ever it was looked too promising to be considered any sin

When Pandora saw that it was hope that was still inside

she knew she must set hope free to be mans only guide

With every ill failing that she upend on earth

Hope was the only element that provided any mirth

To give man determination when everything goes wrong

at least there still be scrap of light hitching hope along.
