Ant



"Do they hate us mom?"

"Who son?"

"The giants who live outside our home. Why are they after us always? We never harm them."

His mother sighed. This was the moment to let her son know the truth. After all, how long could she hide from him?

She took a deep breath, and said, "They are humans son, the most powerful creature made by God."

The baby ant cried, "They captured my friends in a jar, smashed them with feet, and laughed about it. Why did God make them Mom? Why did God turn earth into a hell? Why?"

  14. Loved what you did here.. Us humans are hardly saints.. Perhaps at times, we rely are as evil as the little ants portray us to be.. You nailed the ants perspective quite nicely Amrit! Well done!
