I lived in a time of monsters, great beasts that ruled the land,

There were no words that I spoke, I was a primal man.

I learned to hunt, to eat that which was fought for,

Fearful of the giants that would hunt and eat me.

I learned of fire to keep warm, too cook,Animal skins for clothing to cover my naked skin.

So long ago that it does not seem possible,

Might I have been the first man to walk this land.

I had no name, not even sure of what I was,

The fight for survival, life was quite short.

From the beginning each day had great length,

Tools and weapons of the time were created to see the next daylight.

I was a man whom once walked the land,

The things that I learned are now in your hands.
