Why did the chicken cross the road?

Has it occur to me a million times, just watching the people constantly asking each other the same thing. Just looking at those thoughtful humans, it reminds me of myself when I was just a 3-month-old little chick. In a village. momma keeps on popping the same question into our little minds. “WHY DID THE HUMANS CROSS THE ROAD?” she would ask. And as an observant curious little chick I am, I’ll skidded with only two bare short feet to the side of the road and just watched as various kinds of humans walk by and cross the road. I look confused at that time. Most probably cause I was still naive. Being a 3-month-old chick, I hadn’t seen much of the world. All momma ever taught is that we won’t get kill if we stay slim, stay around the area and keep on laying as much eggs as we could. Human greed and satisfaction I thought. Most of my siblings got liked that way. Even worse if before they hatch, they’re already in no hope of living.

After two months of observing, by then I was already a five-month-old little hen. Being a hen is no fun. But anyways, after two months, of insightful observing towards the humans reasons for crossing the road, a thought strikes me, humans wanted to cross to get to the other side! Yes, that’s it. I grin. But as I stare at it again, I saw that the humans didn’t just stop at the other side, they kept on walking. The more I see this, the more I got disturbed. WHY? I ask myself. What’s so great about the other side that this side doesn’t have. My skin was itching to follow them. So I did. I knew momma would be so angry at me for disobeying her, but being curious, I careless. I started to follow one human to the other side. This has the weirdest comb! it’s big, curly and pink! Most of the humans has it. I’ve even saw some that looks a lot like mine, only it’s brown!

As I was following this human, I saw that it was putting a box thing on her ear while talking. This is somehow an odd action for me. Why on earth would you talk to a box? Maybe its siblings was in there. Yea, that’s it. I followed her to an odd coop. It was cold inside and I could hear strange noises. It sounded like a human speaking but it has an annoying tune at the the background. I barely can understand what it’s trying to tell me.The sound got to me and I feel a little dizzy. So I quickly went home. I saw that the humans from this side where I was standing tries to cross over to the other side where I called home. Curious but I start to careless. Whatever that this weird humans are doing , surely it’s just to get another headache. So I tried to cross over. It was a bit hard though as there was this big metal thing moving around trying to knocked me. But fortunately I managed to get back home safely.

It’s a secret I have kept since then. Whenever I hear those silly humans asking why did the chicken cross the road , I would know why. It’s because we are curious about the other side so we tend to follow humans just to see what’s the fuss about there that everyone leaves here. This is my the chicken cross the road.

See how much you've written? A lot, right? That's because you've got lots of ideas. However, it'd be much better if you're less careless with the grammar; this piece could have been perfect. Go back to the grammar notes especially on the tenses.
