27. The first Home

One day, somewhere in Africa

a group of hominins

were trying to make the fire

but the wind was blowing hard

and it was all new for them

and they were trying to find a shelter.

Few hundred years later

they found a cave

went inside

and lit the fire.

Few hundred years later

yellow light bounced off the cave walls

and lit up the place

as they waited for the night

they felt warm inside

sleeping next to the fire

a sense of safety gleaming

in their eyes.

Few hundred years later

one morning

they looked outside

for the first time;

the sunlight creeping inside.

Few hundred years later

they looked around

and found a lake nearby

trees full of fruits

and animals rushing around.

Humans had found their first home.
