This Little Ant


The ant

Carries an immense load

That no one really notices

Because it's just an ant

But it builds homes

Ant hills, paves paths in ant farms

Some may notice

But no one really cares

Because it's just an ant

The poor ant can only run so fast

Before everything it's running from

Catches up to greet it

Despite being stomped upon

The little ant still holds on

And it can't continue anymore

And it's cornered now

And it's paralyzed by it's quietness

So busy, so active, so productive, so brave

But this little and can't take it

But it does anyway
