I am an ant walking up a tree
Traversing an unpredictable terrain
Peaks and valleys over time

I work together with others
I solve problems as they arise
I provide food for my family

I am an ant walking up a tree
And I do not know it is a tree

I have not seen the larger body
Of the landscape through which I spend my days

But I know that the sun shines on it
And that the rain waters it

I know the shapes of its leaves
And I know how I am to live.
