Dave and Marry were roaming in the school garden.
While they were having a chat about blood, money and world wars,
Dave accidentally got his attention towards the swarm of ants.
So, his vision both physically and mentally got divided towards the tiny ‘Men in action!’
He saw that each one of them was carrying pieces of their food and the row was too long…
Watching his eyes diverging to other side,
Marry asked him…
“Hey! are you even listening?
I am talking about the historic story of Belgium?
Seriously! You are looking at the ants!!
Do you think its important than Belgium??
No… actually I read this fact about them yesterday… that they don’t sleep
What! Ants don’t sleep? asked marry impulsively to hear the fact again
“Yeah” said Dave with a broad smile on his face
He continued, Marry you know sometimes I think we have 249 countries but think about them (Pointing at the members of swarm) they are so small that they would have like… 1 million countries!
Just think this is only a ground for us,
But for them… It would be a Country 😀 ”
(Dave’s expressions proved his exuberance! He sat down beside the ants and gave their hard work a close look.)
Marry thinking about the ants; smiled,Went to Dave,
Placed a hand on his shoulder and said
” Dave, these continents, countries, states… Boundaries
We have created this all.
And you can suppose, that
As many divisions we create,
As much hate lies in our hearts!
Dave with his innocent eyes looked back
” They work with those tiny hands,
They have no Gods but they worship the hearts of their race
They never allow ego to shallow their characters…
They take bath in the same sea
Eat on the same table
And they don’t have boundaries… They have ONE WORLD 🙂
I wish that our world would be the same one day…
Where passing smiles will be the job for all
Yeah, we will sleep… (They smiled looking at each other)
But we will never be that tired…
Only the work we hate…makes us tiresome!
How beautiful would be the day we all will be one…
It won’t matter how tiny we would be in this immense universe
Dave asked ” Oh my God! You got that out of ants?
You Miss Genius! ”
Dave started tickling her in the stomach… The 5th graders ran away leaving all of us with a great message 🙂
