Singing Silence

Even when I am silent the world still sings,

Shouts, yells, cries, bawls,

Even when I am silent

When I try to find peace and reason,

Or when I sink into oblivion ,

Still it hums, buzzes, weeps

Never still, always moving,

Never still, always searching,

Searching for something to stop the moving

Just to hit pause,

If not for a second,

Perhaps for our lifetime

 

It breathes,

Release,

Even when I am silent the world still whispers

There are secrets to be told,

There is never enough time to listen,

Even when there is nothing to do

But to keep going, what else is there?

Questions and answers, and questions,

Even when there is nothing left

When the world has found its rest,

When you have long been dead,

Even when we are all silent

 

Still the world will sing
