Day 181: Discoveries

I’ve always wondered must have been like

For the first man to walk upon the earth

And all the discoveries that led to us

I wonder if he sensed the heat of fire

Or if pain was the lesson he learnt

I wonder how language came to be

How we understood the gibberish

Who discovered that cows produced milk

Or that eggs were edible

I wonder who discovered the sword

That death was irreversible

I wondered what caused the first tears

that flowed down his eyes

Did he taste the saltiness,

or the bitterness of pain?

Thank you for reading.
