Trust in the universe.



                                                            Trust in the universe,
                                                               she bleated at me.

This universe,
                                                                   in which you are a speck
                                                      on a planet,
                                                                        which is a speck
                                                                                                    in a galaxy,
           which is a speck
       in a universe
                                   which is one of many,
                                                                all of which
                                                   could be swallowed
                                                                                                                 by a black hole,
                                                                                       
                                                                        this universe
                                                                                       will take time out
                                                                                       from its concerns
                                                    with expansion
                                       and orbits
                                                                             and gravity
                                         and other laws of physics,  

                                                                             and somehow arrange
                                                          to right your wrongs,
                                                  or grant your wishes,
                    or turn red lights to green,
                                or treat you like the queen
                                                                             you are.

                                  Or not.

It gives us an interesting autonomy, doesn't it?
