Apollo : The Greek God of Light

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Apollo, the son of Zeus and Leto, twin brother of Artemis, born in the little island of Delos, is known as the Greek god of prophecy and oracles, healing, plague and disease, music, song and poetry, archery, and the protection of the young.

He is also described as "The most Greek of all the gods.” Furthermore, he is also the god of Light, in whom is no darkness at all, and so he is known as the god of Truth. No lie would come from his lips.Like all gods, Apollo had a number of lovers. This could represent the different types of love, love of family, of friends, of enemies, of siblings, etc...

I chose to write an article about Apollo because he represents a few things I take an interest in. One of those things is music, and not to mention, like Apollo, I also play a string-instrument. Music has a huge impact on my life. Through music I've made a lot of amazing friends, made others feel something through my singing, and found a way to express myself when no one seems to listen.

As I mentioned earlier, Apollo is the god of both healing and plagues. Which shows that there's more than one side to a person which is the complete opposite of the side we're used to. This is what makes us human, perfections seen inside imperfections. Even though gods are seen as superior beings, they still have their limitations, just like us humans. We should know what we can and cannot do, but just because we can do something doesn't mean we have to do it.

And if someone asked me if I wanted to become a god, I would say no, because I'm ready to live my life to the fullest with what I have, will have, and with who I am.

  1. Woi! Alo! I also like Apollo because of his "Medical Knowledge" (who knows, if he actually lives, he might cure cancer/AIDS xD) The only downside he had (unfortunately) is that he is gay (and he might contract the AIDS disease).

    I noticed that the latter part of your article is a "reflecting" sentence. For me, it's a plus.

    Your paragraph organization made us (readers) understand your paragraph better
