Eyes in the depths of the universe

Nine planets of the solar system
Fastened by nine invisible chains
No one can escape
Days after days the eyes in the depths of the universe traveling billions of light years
Entertained by the never ending game of human on earth
No matter how many times it is updated and upgraded
Life and death repeat same cycles
Fruit feeding
Oxygen sustains
The ocean nourishes the earth with rainwater
The earth crosses the ocean to catch shrimp and fish
Fallen leaves become fertilizer for new leaves
The cries of the newborns mixed with the cries at the funeral
The tree is planted for the tree to fall, for shipbuilding and house building
Romeo and Juliet's love between men and women
But a chemical reaction that can't be stopped
We are all guinea pigs in the earth laboratory
Hurricanes, hails, earthquakes, cancers, coronavirus , AIDS
Watching the human’s reactions
Don't worry about tomorrow's plots
Today's drama is enough to exhaust us
The eyes in the depths of the universe
Watching us go through wars and peace
The shifts from love to hate
Rotation of ascending and descending
The next millennium repeats the previous one
Even the planets have no freedom to derail
The eyes in the depths of the universe
Overflowing with love also laying down roadblocks

    A feeling of being just a dust without any influence on it all? Maybe the poet forgot that as soon as a butterfly lands, all things change with it, because all is connected.
