Not so single-minded

If we were not so single-minded about keeping our lives moving And for once could do nothing, Perhaps a huge silence Might interrupt this sadness Of never understanding ourselves And of threatening ourselves with death. Perhaps the earth could teach us As when everything seems dead And later proves to be alive.
