Once upon a time, in a small village nestled in the forest, there was a boy named Tom. Tom was a bright and passionate child, with a great love for the outdoors. He was a curious soul, often getting into trouble with his overactive imagination and his loud, clamorous behavior.
Tom was the youngest in his family and was often overlooked by other children his age. He had no problem making friends, but they didn’t always understand his outbursts, frequent curiosity, and endless energy.
One day, the village was set to have a traditional festival. Tom loved to go to the festivals, and he was particularly excited for this one. He jumped around and begged his family to come along, but they were too busy with chores to take him. So, Tom decided to go by himself.
On the way to the festival, Tom couldn’t contain his excitement. He ran around, laughing and shouting, and banging on drums that he had made. He was so loud and vibrant that he attracted the attention of the animals in the forest. Birds, rabbits, and even a few deer stopped to see what the commotion was all about.
Unfortunately, Tom didn’t know that his clamorous behavior was upsetting the peace and balance of the forest. As he continued to be loud and energetic, an old man watched from a distance, shaking his head.
When Tom finally reached the festival, it was already in full swing. He was welcomed with open arms, but many people were scolding him for the disturbance he had created. Tom was baffled. He had no idea his behavior had caused so much commotion.
The old man stepped forward, explaining to Tom that the balance of the forest was a precious thing, and it should never be disturbed. Everyone listened attentively as the man spoke, seeing the wisdom in his words.
Tom was ashamed and embarrassed, realizing that his actions had consequences he had not been able to see. He apologized to the old man and all the villagers for his behavior and promised to never again disturb the peace of the forest.
The moral of the story is that it is important to be aware of the consequences of our actions and to think before we act. Being too loud and energetic can often disturb the peace of our environment, and it is important to be mindful of that.
