I heard a poem during childhood, I’ll recite it to you.
One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight and nine lived together.
However they fought a lot.
Nine mocked eight saying it was smaller then it.
Eight laughed at seven and teased it for being small.
Seven looked at six and bragged about being bigger than it.
All of them were fighting among themselves.
Everyone was belittling each other.
Poor one, had no option but to stand there helplessly.
It roamed about aimlessly.
It met zero somewhere which was neglected by everyone.
One asked it who it was.
Zero replied that it was worthless.
One empathized with zero as it was smallest of all.
The two of them united and became ten and their lives changed forever.
Did you understand anything?
Listen til the time one and zero were alone, nobody took them seriously
but when the two came together they became ten.
Nobody could bother them after that.
Everyone from nine to two bowed before them.
You people have to do the same.
