We started as one. A single seed dropped from above. We took root. We drank water. We fought for sunlight with the trees. Then there were two, no - three, wait - four more. It was hard, we stayed short and stubby, struggling for survival.

We didn't know where we came from. We didn't know why we were here. The trees ruled the forest but we owned the forest floor. We drank their water, they took our sunlight. They were the gods, we were the minions.

  8. "We chanted at sunrise, hoping for more light. We prayed at sunset, looking for a brighter tomorrow." My favorite line. Well done!
