"Humble Beginnings"

The eyes of the first men
Who peered from this place
Who waited for sunlight
Huddled in fear
Together they felt
The coldness of night
Their visions remained unclear
The observance of animals
In copulation
Aware of the need for population
Without fires that roared
Empathy was still yet to be borne
Until the sympathetic lightning
Brought forth its warmth
Lessening the presence of the frightening
When peering outward from their place
Unaware of the future of their race
The mingling of the people
Who huddled together
Eons later buried in the nether
Evidence of their presence in the soil
Gathering at first in their primary toil
They fashioned tools and stood erect
Worshiping the sun with utter respect
In the wake of their own wonder
Their mark in history in likeness to thunder
A presence to be reckoned with
As they spun tales of lore and myth
Placing images on the wall
In answer to the distant call
