The Universe Does Not Care For Us


THE UNIVERSE DOES NOT CARE FOR US

The Universe does not care for us
It does not even know that we exist
It does not even realize it
When it is cruel to us
Deaths and disasters
Massive extinctions
Horrible pain and suffering
Come from its incidents and accidents
It does not care
It does not know
It is as dumb as indifference
As ignorant as death
As empty as all its incredible distances
A nothing of nothings
The lowest of the low
So much less than what we are
Who are so infinitesimal a part of it
And so insignificant and great -God-Holy in raging against it

    The Universe doesn't care for us, but who cares for us? I'll say, the people around us especially our family..
    and God is not against human race it is just a suffering we gained when Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit came from the tree of knowledge.... Knowledge gives Sin, But Sin Bared the Love of God.. He sacrifice his son for us. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
