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.
